Science Research Program
Engage in Laboratory Research
The Science Research Program (SRP) offers motivated and independent science students the chance to step beyond the traditional classroom structure to explore their area of interest. Coursework is focused on training in the basics of scientific inquiry and experimentation.
Once they are prepared, students work alongside a mentor scientist at a university research facility during the summer of your junior year, engaging in cutting-edge research in areas such as cell biology, molecular genetics, mechanical engineering, or astrophysics. Student research culminates in a written manuscript meeting the standards of professional publication, a poster one would see at an academic conference, and a 15-minute seminar talk to the Choate community in the fall term of the sixth form year.
