High School and Community College
Striving to make innovative scientific research accessible and relevant to a wide audience, Lewis & Clark provides several opportunities for collaboration between high school students and our science faculty and majors.
Collaborative Research Program
Designed to broaden access to science, this program is structured around the idea of laddered research teams: each three-person team consists of a faculty member, a Lewis & Clark science major, and a high school or community college student. The primary aim is to provide students with a rigorous, lab-based experience emphasizing the collaborative nature of scientific research. In other words, participants explore what a future career as a scientist or mathematician might be like. In addition, L & C is introducing a new CRT program centered on supporting and preparing students for careers as science or math educators. The new program, HHMI-EDU CRT follows the same model as the CRT summer research program but includes additional programming and training focused on helping students become the next generation of science and/or math educators.

Focused on making innovative scientific research accessible and relevant to a wide audience, the annual Science Without Limits Symposium seeks to increase participation in the physical and natural sciences among all groups, particularly those that have been historically underrepresented.
Each fall, the symposium showcases new and exciting developments in interdisciplinary areas of scientific research and successfully engages diverse audiences through presentations, colloquiums, forums, and interactive activities.
The CRT Summer Research Program and the Science Without Limits Symposium are made possible by a grant from the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation
