This one-week Institute teaches middle school teachers about nanotechnology research and the underlying physical concepts that apply to the science classes they teach. Daily sessions focus on inquiry-based modules providing teachers with materials that explicitly address California’s 8th grade physical science content standards. Participants receive stipends and Continuing Studies Credits.
Classes at Stanford
The Stanford University Math Camp, SUMaC is designed for high school students who will be juniors and seniors in the fall, who have exceptional interest and ability in mathematics. SUMaC is for those who seek to be challenged in mathematics and those who would enjoy four weeks of intensive, in-depth, mathematical pursuits. SUMaC provides an environment that fosters social and intellectual development centered on the study and enjoyment of mathematics.
The Stanford Explore Lecture Series is an exploratory series covering the basic fundamentals and current research areas represented by the five Institutes of the Stanford School of Medicine (Immunology, Neuroscience, Cardiovascular Medicine, Regenerative and Stem Cell Medicine, and Cancer Biology) as well as research areas in Bioengineering and Genetics.
The Stanford Summer Teaching Institute is a collection of 4-, 5-, and 8-day courses focused on the development of effective instructional practices for a variety of content areas and grade levels.
Discovering Medicine @ Stanford is offered by the Stanford Medical Youth Science Program (SMYSP) for high school sophomores and juniors who are preparing for a 4-year college and have a serious interest in pursuing a health or medical career. The program is interactive, with small group workshops, and direct interactions with a variety of health professionals from the Stanford Hospitals & Clinics and the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System hospital, as well as faculty, staff, and students from the Stanford School of Medicine. There is a $750 program fee to attend.
Stanford Summer Session offers visiting high school students, undergraduates, graduate students, and adults a full range of 8 - 10 week classes during the summer in the Humanities, Sciences, Math, Engineering and Athletics. Tuition is charged and credit earned by students may be eligible for transfer to another college or university.
EPGY offers online classes for gifted youth, residential programs on campus during the summer for high school and middle school students, a program for international students, as well as an EPGY On-line High School.
The mission of the Stanford ESP community is to reach out, to enthuse young eager minds, and share our muses and sources of joy and inspiration with people around us, especially high school students.
We offer days on campus full of academic and non-academic classes taught by Stanford students. ESP invites students to attend classes that could vary from completely “non-academic” stuff like cookie baking and origami, to complicated and challenging classes on machine theory or quantum mechanics.
The next Splash! Days will be April 13 - 14, 2013
The Cardiothoracic Surgical Skills and Education Center Stanford Summer Internship is designed to educate high school and pre-medical students considering careers in science, medicine, and public health in basic and advanced cardiovascular anatomy and physiology as well as medical and surgical techniques that will be utilized in pre-medical and medical school.
This program is open to all students worldwide. There is a fee to apply and a $5,800 fee to participate.
Due to overwhelming demand, this program has added a second session to accommodate additional students. Please note that the curriculum for Program 1 and Program 2 are identical, and the application deadline is the same for both programs. Program 2 dates are July 15-August 9, 2013.
The Summer Math and Science Honors (SMASH) Academy is:
- A three-year 5-week summer math and science enrichment program;
- For high achieving, low-income high school students of color;
- Focused on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM);
- Successful in preparing scholars for college and achievement in higher education;
- Free of cost.
SMASH scholars spend five weeks each summer at a SMASH site on a college campus (currently at UC Berkeley or Stanford) immersed in rigorous STEM classes.
SMASH scholars also receive year-round academic support including SAT prep, college counseling, financial aid workshops and other activities to ensure continued academic success.
The Stanford Math Circle (SMC) is a weekly gathering of high school (or younger) students working on problems involving complex and advanced mathematical topics, guided by mathematicians and educators.
This three-week course (half days) is for students considering careers in a variety of procedure-based medical fields, such as surgery, dental surgery, and nursing. It may also be of interest to students who intend to study biomedical engineering, occupational or physical therapy, sports medicine, or to become EMTs/paramedics.
The course includes daily classroom and laboratory sessions led by Stanford instructors, as well as student-led case presentations, guided dissections, and surgical simulations with human cadavers.
