Imagine working on the cutting edge of scientific research - gene therapy delivery systems utilizing nanotechnology, astrophysical studies to shed light on the origin of the universe, or flying an experiment in space to find a solution to a real problem faced by the international space community ... while you are still in high school!
Since 1998, more than 500 of Hathaway Brown's Upper School students have had experiences like these through the innovative and nationally acclaimed Science Research & Engineering Program.
Hathaway Brown's Science Research & Engineering Program is an elective that was initiated in early 1998 by former BP Researcher Patricia Kelly Hunt who directed the SREP until 2015. It enrolls about 30% of the grade 9-12 student population. Students in the Program are linked with supervising professionals from institutions such as Case Western Reserve University, University Hospitals, The Cleveland Clinic, NASA Glenn Research Center, and the Cleveland Museum of Natural History for the purpose of conducting a research project. Once a placement is made, the SREP Director assists as necessary, also helping students prepare for optional competitions. View/download the 2016 SREP brochure
