Faculty mentors needed for high school science outreach program

Partnership for Scientific Inquiry (PSI), local high school course that gives students real-world research experience, is looking for volunteer mentors from OHSU. What makes this program invaluable to students is the opportunity to work closely with their mentors to create a research proposal and conduct that research in their mentor’s lab.

Mentors attend one class to give a brief presentation to the students and then meet periodically with an assigned student to help them read a peer-reviewed article and prepare a research proposal. Most mentors will also host their student in the summer. The first class begins Monday, February 4.

  1. Our program attracts many of the brightest and highest achieving high school students each year. Two former PSI students have recently become National Finalists in the Intel STS!
