The Center for Excellence in Education sponsors the Research Science Institute and the USA Biology Olympiad. Annually offered to gifted high school scholars who plan careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, the Center’s cost-free programs seek to nurture young scholars to careers of excellence and leadership to assure future global competitiveness. The Research Science Institute, held each summer at MIT, is a six week summer enrichment program that emphasizes advanced theory and research in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, by fostering student internships with leading researchers and scientists. The USA Biology Olympiad is a national competition to train future leaders in the biological sciences. Top performers are selected to represent the United States at the International Biology Olympiad, where Team USA garnered gold in 2007 and 2008.
If you or your children like science, technology or engineering, you might want to get involved in one of these programs or start preparing to get involved in a few years.
