Depending on the program, this may include preparatory classes, hands-on scientific research, teamwork, and/or competition.
- Foundations in Science and Math (FSM)
This is a two week summer course for middle school students designed to help them prepare for high school science and math courses.
- Indiana Junior Academy of Science (IJAS)
The IJAS meeting and competition is held on the IU Bloomington campus each fall. Sponsored by the Indiana Academy of Science, IJAS is designed to encourage high school students to pursue an interest in science study and careers.
- Indiana University PEPP (Princeton Earth Physics Project) Earthquake Science Institute
This nationwide educational outreach program that combines state-of-the-art seismological research with hands-on classroom training for middle and high school students in the physical and earth sciences.
- Project STEM
Project STEM is a summer internship program that invites high school students interested in science and engineering to be involved with research at a college level.
- Science Olympiad
This exciting, hands-on science competition is for middle and high school students. More than 30 events cover all the science disciplines (including math), and many require teamwork and cooperation. Indiana middle and high schools can field teams to compete in individual and team events requiring knowledge of science concepts, processes, and applications. Regional winners advance to the state tournament often held on the IU Bloomington campus.
Jump start your college education with early research opportunities
Incoming freshmen can get ahead and gain valuable research experience before they even begin their first semester of classes at IU.
Jim Holland Summer Science Programs
The Indiana University Jim Holland Summer Science Programs are specifically designed to address the ethnic and racial disparities that exist in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) fields. The Holland programs focus on high-achieving, underrepresented students who are currently in grades 8-11 (entering grades 9, 10, 11, and 12 in the fall)
