About Summer Scholars 2016

Get SMAHRT with #SCRIScholars

What is it? 

Each summer, SMAHRT hosts Seattle Children’s Research Institute’s flagship Summer Scholars program. This five day event provides 25 10th, 11th and 12th grade students with an opportunity to conduct a relevant research project, even if they have no prior experience.

When is it?DSCF3828

The 2016 Summer Scholars will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. July 11-15 at our facilities in the Seattle Research Institute in downtown Seattle.

What’s the purpose?

With our Summer Scholars programming, SMAHRT aims to engage students who may not have other opportunities to engage with topics in research and health-related fields. We do this by . . .

1. Providing learning that is interactive, hands-on, and enjoyable

2. Guiding Summer Scholars toward creating a research product to present by the end of the session

3. Increasing awareness of future possibilities for a career in research

What’s in it for me?

Click here for the Summer Scholars Flyer! Students will design their own research project centered on teen health and social media, learn different types of research methods, discover a variety of career paths in research and health-related fields, and practice their public speaking and presentation skills.

To learn more about past programs, see our Summer Scholars Yearbook or find the  #SCRIScholars hashtag on Twitter.

I honestly learned so much in only a week’s time and it was unfortunate that the program ended so soon. I also made some great new friends – in both the mentors and my fellow scholars – so thanks once again for what I consider the highlight of my summer!” – SMAHRT 2015 alumni
