University of Toronto St. George Research Exploration Opportunity
The Research Exploration Opportunity program, coordinated by the University of Toronto St. George STEM Fellowship Branch, provides high school students with the opportunity to experience cutting-edge research in a university laboratory. This one-week program runs during the 2022 March Break and enables students to explore the world of research, be immersed in the process of scientific inquiry, and ask questions about possible paths to this field. At a University of Toronto lab, participants will engage in activities including tours of first-class research facilities, introductions to basic techniques and experiments using state-of-the-art equipment, shadowing of lab personnel, and attending lab meetings, seminars, and faculty presentations.
