Inspiring Future Scientists through Shadowing (IFSS)

August 4 - 15, 2014

Inspiring Future Scientists through Shadowing (IFSS) is a two-week long summer program for high school students hosted by the chemistry department at Stanford University.  Participants shadow graduate student mentors as they pursue cutting edge chemical research in the laboratory.  This is an exciting opportunity to experience the day-to-day life of a professional chemist while learning about the important questions that are being pursued by researchers in the department!  At the conclusion of the program, participants will present what they have learned to their peers.  Participants will also have the opportunity to attend a panel discussion led by graduate students on the topic of making the transition from high school to studying science at the undergraduate (and graduate level).
