SEARCH (Summer Explorations And Research Collaborations for High School Girls)

This program is designed for students who have developed some confidence in mathematics, but who have not seen mathematics beyond the high school curriculum. Students are given the opportunity for in-depth exploration guided by mathematics faculty and in collaboration with other students. The environment is hands-on and lively with an emphasis on students formulating and answering their own questions. Students are introduced to several pieces of software that are useful tools for mathematical explorations. There are several evening collaborative problem solving sessions, as well as field trips.
