High school students will have an exposure to, how scientific research proposal is written and how the actual research work is performed. In addition they will be familiarized with the Islamic research principles. Students who will successfully complete the 7-day Summer program, will have an opportunity to submit proposals for a paid research internship. Selection of the proposals will be made based on the a) merit/quality of the proposal, b) Relevance (Islamic and community etc.) , c) Interest/commitment to complete, and d) urgency to make use of the effort. Selected students will then be able to form teams to carry out the collaborative research. A final presentation is also expected at the completion of the internship.
Here are some example projects, the students will be introduced to, but keep in mind that the list will evolve based on the available mentors and student feedback.
