The Clarkson School, a division of Clarkson University, will once again offer the Young Scholars Program during the summer of 2021. This program is for motivated and talented students who will be high school sophomores, juniors, seniors or first year college students in fall 2021.
The weeklong program will be held starting Sunday, July 18 through Saturday, July 24, 2021.
Consistent with Clarkson's overall focus on interdisciplinary education, you will be given a problem to examine and solve from multiple perspectives including technical feasibility, the implications of health care and larger social implications. Students will work with faculty from a number of disciplines including computer science, psychology and health care.
Working individually and in small groups, you conduct research and make a final presentation. Your families are also encouraged to attend the final presentation. This unique program sparks intellectual development and requires you to exercise strong communication skills and cooperative problem solving.
