PRIMES after-school HS research program (Program for Research In Mathematics, Engineering, & Science)

The MIT Mathematics Department is offering a new after-school research program for high school students from Greater Boston, called PRIMES: Program for Research In Mathematics, Engineering, and Science.

PRIMES connects high school students with MIT faculty and graduate students to work on advanced research projects in mathematics or computational biology.

Program participants come weekly to MIT campus to meet with their mentors, audit lectures, and visit MIT labs. The Program is free, and there is no application fee. Girls, minorities, and students from underprivileged groups are strongly encouraged to apply.

The application deadline for the 2011 program cycle is December 15, 2010.

You will be able to:
  • work with MIT researchers on exciting unsolved problems in
  • mathematics or computational biology for one year
  • submit your project to science competitions
  • meet other students who love math
  • attend lectures in math and science
  • visit MIT research labs
You will learn:
  • a lot of cool new math
  • how to use computers to do math research
  • how to look for patterns, form and test conjectures, and prove theorems
  • how to write a research paper and give a talk
For further information, see

This is a wonderful opportunity for talented students to build a solid foundation for a future
career in mathematics, science, or engineering.
