Each morning, students will review key concepts in math, chemistry, and physics to prepare them for their first year of courses. Lunch sessions will focus on developing skills in leadership, teamwork, studying, time management, and coping strategies for challenges. In the afternoon, students will apply the morning’s concepts in hands-on or computational laboratory activities. Evenings and weekends will be filled with social activities so that participants can build a network and community while experiencing the culture of the great city of Philadelphia.
