The ASSIST Center hosts teachers and high school and undergraduate students each summer for several weeks of intensive research experiences. Working either at the Centennial Campus of NC State University or at one of our partner institutions, participants work with a faculty mentor based on their interest and conduct a research project.
This summer of research includes daily activities like seminars, field trips, workshops and access to cutting-edge equipment and world-class instructors from a broad spectrum of science and engineering disciplines. Culminating in a poster symposium, participants share their research, techniques and results with a wide array of attendees that includes interested members of the public and faculty from each institution.
View some snapshots of the 2021 Summer Research Symposium held at the James B. Hunt Library on the campus of NC State University to get an idea of what these driven, inspiring students learned this summer.
Be sure to watch for details about our 2022 summer programming. Applications will be due in early spring.
