My name is Alex, and I am a lecturer at the University of Washington. I wanted to reach out to share an opportunity for your students at Huntington-Surrey. The Summer STEM Institute (SSI) is a six-week virtual summer program for high school students. The program was started last summer by educators, students, and graduates from Stanford, Harvard, and MIT. Last year, SSI received over 2,450 applications from students in 78 different countries. Many students who attended the program said SSI changed their lives and asked for the team to continue running SSI in future years. Applications for SSI 2021 have just opened, and we thought your students may be interested in applying. The program consists of three main parts:
Research and data science bootcamp: Students learn how to design and conduct data science research projects. Students learn about the research process and how to apply statistical and machine learning methods to address scientific questions with real-world impact.
Masterclass lecture series: Students are connected to accomplished young adults around the world. Students have the opportunity to learn about entrepreneurship from Forbes 30 Under 30 recipients, science research from International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) grand prize winners, and other topics from speakers with diverse backgrounds and experiences.
Mentored research project: Students complete a research project through a rigorous, hands-on learning experience under the guidance of mentors. Previously, students have worked in a variety of fields, from computational biology to quantum physics.
If any of your students may be interested in and are a good fit for the program, could you please share this opportunity with them? Students and families can learn more about SSI and apply on our website here: https://www.summersteminstitute.org/
The Summer STEM institute (SSI) is an international virtual summer program for top young scientists and leaders. The program consists of a data science and research bootcamp, a Masterclass series, weekend challenges, and a mentored project.

We wanted to remind you that our annual Women Exploring Marine and Atmospheric Science event will be this Saturday, November, 14th starting at 9EST virtually via Zoom Webinar. An annual day of interactive science learning for middle and high school grade girls, hosted by the Rosenstiel School at the University of Miami! On the day of the event the girls will virtually visit marine science laboratories, see first-hand ongoing research project and interact with female scientists from a variety of different fields and backgrounds. This event was founded by Dr. Rana Fine, faculty member and Professor of Ocean Sciences, and AAUW. Please see our schedule (so far) is below:
