Scientists in New York City (including graduate students, postdocs, and other early-career scientists) can mentor teams of NYC high school students through the academic year. Mentors guide the students through all phases of the research process, beginning with project design and culminating in poster and oral presentations at a research symposium in May or June. Scientist mentors should have working knowledge of molecular biology techniques including DNA extraction, PCR, and basic sequence analysis, and have time to work with students for a total of at least 55 hours during the academic year.
