ARC–Oak Ridge National Laboratory 2016 Summer Math-Science-Technology Institute and Summer Science Academy


ARC and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, will hold two hands-on STEM learning programs for Appalachian students and teachers in July 2016: A high school math-science-technology institute, which is a two-week residential program for students and teachers; and a middle school science academy, which is a one-week residential program just for students. Both programs are all expenses paid and offer the opportunity to work with world-class scientists doing real science!

See the links below for information on each program and how to apply. Applications for both programs must be submitted to the ARC state program manager of the state in which the applicant's school is located. Applications are due in most states by March 18, 2016; however, deadlines may differ for some states and should be confirmed with the state program manager. Applicants will be notified of their status by mail or email by early April.

For questions and further information on the programs, please contact ARC Education Program Manager Jeff Schwartz at jschwartz@arc.gov.
