College Preparatory School for Girls Grades 3-12

Science Research Program

Working in a laboratory is an integral part of science research. Holton students are provided a unique opportunity through the School’s Science Research Program to experience this work first hand.

During the spring semester of junior year, students pursuing engineering based internships take a course in computer programming and robotics. Students interested in biomedical research take a course in Molecular and Microbiology. Armed with this information, the girls are then placed in local institutions for summer internships to work side-by-side with doctors and conduct their own research.

This during the summer of 2017, members of the class of 2018 participated in project-based internships.

Student projects and presentation are listed below:
