The 2016  Summer Program will engage students who are in rising 6th, 7th and 8th grades.

The summer program is a four-week program (beginning June 6 and ending July 1) from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. The program offers robotics, anatomy, engineering, field trips and guest STEAM visitors*. Health, mathematics, and other aspects of STEAM are integrated into all curricular activities. The summer academy is an exciting learning experience for students in a small group learning environment. The summer academy will culminate with student presentations of science projects developed throughout the four weeks. Projects will be presented to students’ families, faculty and staff of MSM on the main campus.

The summer program curriculum consists of thematic programming, ranging from engineering/technology, food science, and health and healthy bodies, to scientific inquiry. The curricular activities are reflective of the theme. Students are engaged in inquiry–based activities that reinforce the curriculum taught during the morning classes, and make the content relevant to everyday life. 

*The following are examples of previous STEAM visitors: IBM, Ga Power, and the Ga State Bio Bus

Atlanta Sickle Cell Summer Research Training Program

The Atlanta Sickle Cell Summer Research Program, sponsored by the Excellence in Hemoglobinopathies Research Award from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and conducted in collaboration with Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM), is an outstanding science training opportunity for high school students. The program is designed to involve young people from groups underrepresented in health professions and biomedical sciences in cutting-edge scientific research conducted in an academic medical center and to cultivate a continued interest in research related to sickle cell disease.

Application website open:                    February 1, 2016
Application deadline:                            April 1, 2016
Program Dates:                                      June 1 – July 23, 2016


Program Details

This eight-week program offers a chance to learn, explore, and gain hands-on experience in a medical center research laboratory environment for up to three students each summer. Each student will be assigned a faculty mentor and work in his or her laboratory. Faculty mentors have active sickle cell research labs and are loated at Emory University, MSM and Georgia Institute of Technology. Students will be assigned mini-research projects or work with laboratory staff on ongoing research. Those students who complete sufficient research in one or more summers will be encouraged to present at local or national scientific meetings and may contribute to papers published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Fellowships begin with an orientation in early June and last for eight weeks. At the end of the program, students will give an oral presentation of their research projects.

Hours of Operation: Monday - Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
