We are excited to work in collaboration with a local high school to provide an intensive 2-week summer research program that exposes sophomores to human development research and the college experience.


Program Activities

  • tour of campus and research facilities
  • obtain college info
  • interact with current undergraduates and hear about their college experiences
  • meet professors and learn about their research programs
  • learn about research methods
  •  work-one-on-one with graduate students, postdocs, and/or faculty to formulate and conduct a research project
  • present research findings to UC Davis faculty
