          • High School Honors Science, Math, and Engineering Program

            The HSHSP provides its participants with a unique opportunity to “live and breathe” research in a university environment. Its goals are not only to educate individuals about the research process but to provide the right kind of social context for such knowledge and expertise to flourish. Our goal is not to produce award-winning projects (which often happens, I am pleased to note), but to provide opportunities to enrich one’s knowledge about intellectual work in science and mathematics and to make new and, hopefully, lasting friendships.

          • Sigma Camp

            SigmaCamp is a week-long math and science sleepaway camp for students 12-16 years old. SigmaCamp gives campers a unique opportunity to learn math and science from professional scientists. Our faculty include leading specialists from Stony Brook University, Brookhaven National Lab and Harvard Medical School.

            The goal of SigmaCamp is to ignite a spark of interest and curiosity in students. At Sigma, campers spend time around scientists who can give a first-hand account of what real science research is like. We want to show them the interdependence of the sciences: Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Biology, and Computer Science. We hope not simply to interest our campers with cool facts and exciting demos, but to give them a profound understanding of why and how things work. We will leave it to them to make observations and rediscover the laws of Nature, following in the footsteps of scientists from the time of ancient Greece to the present day. 
            You may say, in disbelief, that we won’t be able to teach so much in a week! Surely not, but we will plant the seed of interest. The rest is up to you, the parents - and to the SigmaCampers themselves.
