[Stemed-l] engineering the cell opportunity for rising juniors

Dear Counselors and Teachers -
UMass Professor Shelly Peyton will again be offering her Engineering the Cell summer program for two high school women, preferably who will be entering their junior year in the fall of 2016. However Professor Peyton will accept applications from all young women who are interested. 
Engineering the Cell is a summer program in the Peyton lab, exclusively for high school women. Students will spend five weeks in the lab, learning about how engineers can make a difference in cancer research, working directly with Dr. Peyton and graduate students, and learning how to do cutting edge science.  They will also receive a stipend. This program is generously sponsored by a grant awarded to the Peyton lab from the National Science Foundation and the National Cancer Institute.  
The program will run from July 11th to August 12th, from approximately 9-4pm M-F, and students must be able to provide their own transportation. Lunch will be provided. 

Applications are due June 13th.
The emphasis is NOT to necessarily reach the most academically advanced students, but to reach those students with interest that will most benefit from the opportunity. Professor Peyton is really looking for those B - C students in need of a “leg up” in terms of encouragment applying for colleges and scholarships, improved self-esteem, and similar factors. 
Additional information and the 2016 application are available at:  http://www.peytonlab.org/#!etc/c1a73
