The session will start with a short introduction, which will be followed by the students’ presentation of their research. After a brief question and answer period Ms. Kiela and Mr. Gopalan will be joined by the rest of the panel. Together they will outline the basics of the program and explain how it offers high school students the preparation and opportunities necessary to engage in rigorous scholarly research. The remainder of the session will include a discussion amongst the panelists, with audience comment, that explores the ways it can be integrated into the high school curriculum and what this program means for instructors at the university level.
