 Welcome to Carolina ADMIRES

Assisting in Development and Mentoring an Innovative Research Experience in Science!


This program is designed for 8th and 9th grade students who have an interest in science and would like to learn more about what a future career in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) disciplines would bring. Meetings are approximately once a month on Saturday mornings throughout the academic year, with a final presentation day in the early afternoon on a Saturday in May. The program includes modules on professional development in the fall, and science mentorship and research in the spring with one of our Faculty & Postdoctoral Mentors. If you live within Durham, we may be able to offer your student transportation to and from ADMIRES meetings. Browse the links to the left to learn more about what to expect from our program and eligibility requirements and expectations for successful completion of the program.
