How does SRMP work?
The Science Research Mentoring Program (SRMP) is a one year after school research program for high school students in NYC. Students work directly with scientists at the American Museum of Natural History doing hands-on, authentic research. SRMP works across all fields of science represented at the museum, including cultural anthropology, invertebrate zoology, herpetology, ornithology, conservation science, astrophysics, earth and planetary science, and more. The SRMP year runs from August through June. In August, students take part in the SRMP Summer Institute, which consists of 2 weeks of hands-on Data Science and Statistics and a 1 week field trip to Black Rock Forest in Cornwall NY. During the school year, students work with their mentors twice/week after school and attend additional monthly advisories. Their research experience culminates in a Research Colloquium in June where they present their work through scientific posters and research presentations.
