2 week Summer Training Program

NOTE: The 2020 program has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The program will return in 2021.

The NSU College of Psychology, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience is excited to offer a 2-week discovery-based NSU Behavioral Neuroscience half-day training program high school students. We will host a luncheon for parents where students will present work from their research projects on June 26th.

Students will participate in workshops with NSU faculty-experts with demonstrations.

Examples include:
Students will:
  • Receive a certificate upon completion
  • Work with esteemed professors- making the transition from high school to college more familiar, less stressful
  • Advance their skills in research, problem‐solving, and critical thinking
  • Present their own findings at a poster session and receive feedback from professors and peers
  • Become better prepared to enter competitive undergraduate physical and social science programs

The NSU 2020 Behavioral Neuroscience Program is intended for high-school students who will be entering their junior or senior year in fall, 2020. The number of participants will be kept small (maximum 18) due to lab space limitations and to allow for individualized attention and optimal use of equipment.

The Behavioral Neuroscience program fee $250 (includes a $50 registration/processing fee). This covers tuition, supervision, program materials & equipment, daily mid-morning snack, and poster session luncheon.
