Middle School Mentorships

Middle School Mentorships

In this program, students from participating middle schools in Leon County, Florida, have the chance to conduct a semester-long research project at the MagLab.

The program shows them how real-world science is conducted and what kinds of careers they could pursue in the field.

Each mentorship begins with an orientation at the lab, where students meet the Magnet Lab researchers who will be their mentors. For the rest of the semester, students spend every Friday morning in a laboratory setting working on a science project. The 10-week experience culminates in a public presentation of their research attended by lab scientists and researchers, teachers, parents and the general public.
