Fellowships in Science Research & Engineering
This fellowship allows students to explore science research. Girls in SREP path conduct graduate-level research projects in labs with professional scientists and engineers. Students conduct research during the school year and summer and submit their research for prestigious science competitions.
Science Research & Engineering
In the Science Research and Engineering Fellowship, students work in research labs with professional scientists and engineers.
Upper School students are matched with supervising professionals to conduct a graduate-level research project. They spend once a week after school and many weeks in the summer conducting research. In class, they develop as a professional and submit their research for prestigious science competitions.
How to Join
Register for Intro to SREP, a class without textbooks, tests or homework. The first year of class is dedicated to identifying a specific scientific discipline to do research.
In consultation with other teachers and partner scientists, the Fellowship Director works with girls to find a placement aligned with her interests and abilities.
This seminar class can be added or dropped at any point, without any penalty. However, once a student is assigned to a lab, the expectation is a commitment for the duration of high school.
Seniors graduate as Science Research & Engineering Osborne Fellows by following this path:
Intro to SREP, grades 9 - 10
Research Seminar, through grade 12
Placement in a research lab
Completion of a multi-year professionally mentored project
Formal documentation of research at the beginning of senior year and submission in a national competition
