Tulane Pre-College offers a variety of high school-level courses structured around Next Generation Science Standards and designed for rising ninth- through 11th-graders. The enrichment courses were developed with Tulane faculty oversight and are taught by highly qualified instructors and graduate students in STEM fields. Courses cover areas such as environmental science, computer science, robotics, and electrical engineering.
Participants in the program complete lab work and team exercises aimed at building their analytical skills. Students who have a particular interest or talent in a STEM discipline are ideal candidates for STEM experiences for high school students.
In addition, the summer program for high school students offers both day and residential components. Many students are excited about the prospect of going off to college, and through the summer program, they will understand what it’s like living away from home and spending time with their peers. The program improves communication skills and can potentially result in lifelong friendships among teenagers who share similar interests and passions.
