Who: Principal investigators, graduate and PhD students, lab assistants
When: July 3 - August 16, 2019
What: Each year WISEST invites research labs on campus to supervise a WISEST student researcher for 6 weeks. This is an opportunity for you to share your passion for research and your scientific know-how with grade 11 students who want to explore diverse fields of study in science, engineering and technology. Students are paid research assistants who are supervised by a principal investigator or by a member of a research team while contributing to a research project in the lab or in the field. Young women and non-binary students participate within the science, engineering and technology fields, while the young men experience less-traditional fields such as nursing, human ecology or nutrition.
Deadline to apply: The deadline for the 2019 SRP has now passed. Please keep an eye out in March 2020 for next year's program.
Once you submit a proposal, WISEST will contact you to discuss details and see if your project would be a good fit for a student researcher.
