The Science Research Mentoring Program (SRMP) offers high school students the opportunity to join ongoing research projects lead by AMNH scientists. SRMP students conduct authentic scientific studies in one of two tracks: Physical Science or Life Science. Students in the Life Science major have the opportunity to conduct research on a broad variety of topics including cultural and biological anthropology, conservation science, evolutionary biology, genetics and genomics, taxonomy, and systematics.
