Discovery to Cure High School Internship
Rising high school seniors spend six weeks working in a biomedical laboratory at Yale, utilizing research techniques such as gel electrophoresis, immunohistochemistry, and electron microscopy. Since its inception in 2003, more than 300 high school students, undergraduates, and high school teachers have successfully completed the program. Many interns have presented their research at science fairs, and approximately 20% of student interns have published their findings in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

NEWT High School Laboratory Internships
The Nanotechnology-Enabled Water Treatment Center (NEWT) invites Yale Pathways high school juniors to work in their laboratories for a six-week intensive summer research internship. Students work directly with graduate students and faculty on projects related to the production of clean water technologies.
Pathways Summer Scholars Program
The Pathways Summer Scholars program brings 100 high school students from New Haven, West Haven, and Amity public schools to study science for two weeks on Yale’s campus. The goal is to prepare motivated and academically promising students for success in college and to strengthen their ability to pursue science majors and careers. Summer Scholars provides an intensive, hands-on science curriculum that emphasizes discovery, critical thinking, and problem solving. Rising seniors have the opportunity to live on campus during the program and engage in a variety of college-prep enrichment activities. The curriculum is designed by Yale University faculty, graduate and professional students, as well as teachers from local public schools. Yale students serve a vital role as teaching assistants and mentors.
Play2Prevent Lab - ForAGirl Program
Part of the Yale Center for Health & Learning Games at the Yale School of Medicine, Play2PREVENT focuses on the use of video-game play for the purposes of health promotion, risk reduction, social good, and educational interventions. ForAGirl engages female Pathways high school students in a two-week summer research training in developing effective video-game interventions that target areas in which girls and women are disproportionately affected. Female Yale faculty members provide guidance and mentorship.
