STEM Research Academy
The College Now STEM Research Academy at Baruch College is designed to provide high school juniors with an opportunity to build essential literacy and numeracy skills by engaging in ‘authentic inquiry’ activities. Utilizing a two-semester program model (spring to summer), 20-25 students will be selected based on English & Math Regents exam scores, GPA, general interest via essay (writing sample) and transcript review. Selected students will be enrolled in the spring Introduction to Research class to strengthen basic skills such as formulating researchable questions, designing testable experiments, performing literature searches in library databases, and reading scientific literature including peer-reviewed journal articles. The goal of the spring course is to introduce students to the expectations of working in a research lab environment. Upon successful completion of the spring course, students interested in conducting research over the summer will be matched with Baruch College research faculty and participate in a structured six-week program internship.
