Summer Science Research Program (SSRP)
Barry University’s Summer Science Research Program (SSRP) is a comprehensive three-week research program that immerses rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors in life science research while exposing them to the college environment. The program, at no cost to high school students in Broward and Miami-Dade counties, features lectures and workshops on college life and preparation; an authentic inquiry-based science project; state-of-the-art molecular biology methodology; university-style interactive lectures and debates; and science communication. Research culminates in an oral formal presentation by each participant during the Awards Ceremony.
PROGRAM DATES: June 16 – July 3, 2014
PROGRAM TIME: 9:00 a.m. – 4:00pm
“Last summer, I was granted the opportunity to participate in the University of Miami's prestigious Miami Model program. The chances of my being accepted without having Barry University's Summer Science Research Program under my belt were slim. SSRP has helped me successfully compete against some of the state's – and one day, some of the nation's – brightest young scientists. The knowledge and experience of having worked with GMOs, state-of-the-art laboratory equipment and brilliant minds, such as Dr. Redway, are invaluable. Moreover, I have formed friendships with fellow participants that I will carry with me through my years.”
