Science Research Mentoring Program
The Science Research Mentoring Program (SRMP) offers high school students the opportunity to join ongoing research projects lead by AMNH scientists. Students interested in getting accepted for this science research experience must first take three After School Program Science Research courses offered at the museum. These courses prepare students to gain the knowledge and skills necessary for doing science research.
Students that have already fulfilled or will fulfill the Science Research Course requirement by June 2014 can apply for the mentorship experience in spring 2014, to begin work with a scientist in fall 2014. Please visit this website again early in spring 2014 to download the Application Package.
