Summer High School Intensive in Next Generation Engineering -- (SHINE) program at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering is currently accepting applications from 9-11th graders. SHINE runs June 13 - July 29, 2022, on the USC campus (assuming COVID permits) as an experiential learning immersion – it is nothing like summer school, but learning by helping out on authentic research funded by the National Science Foundation or other federal support. Students select from a wide range of professor’s projects in all engineering fields, encompassing both experimental and computational research to help detect or treat cancer, develop innovative materials that are sustainable, combat greenhouse gases, measure brain activity in patients with epilepsy, or program robots to work with children with autism. There are many more projects, all described here. Not only are students exposed to top-quality research practices through a mentor on the research team, but they will be trained with all the other SHINE students in how researchers plan and/or implement an intervention and then analyze and disseminate the results. SHINE students gain research-specific skills, people skills, content knowledge, confidence, and perspective about how their current STEM courses are precursors to a future of real-world problem solving through research.
