The Summer STEM Institute (SSI) is a 6-week virtual summer program that will run from June 21 to August 1, 2020. SSI consists of (1) a data science and research bootcamp, (2) a Masterclass lecture series, and (3) a mentored research project.
Pursuing data science research in high school is hard. Many students are scientifically curious and want to explore computational research projects but often lack the right training to do so. The SSI Bootcamp was designed to empower motivated high school students with the training to conduct computational research projects.

SSI applicants can optionally apply to conduct a data science research project over the course of the 6-week summer program. SSI will match research project students with a mentor and topic in their scientific field of interest. SSI mentors specialize in different fields of science and have extensive experience with data science research and science fairs.
