E.N.G.: Engineering the Next Generation

Two young women present a post on the development of a phantom uterus and cervix to mimic the mechanical environment of pregnancy

ENG is a research opportunity for highly motivated under-represented high school students from local partner schools. The program runs for six weeks over the summer and includes both lab work and supplemental programming to develop students’ academic and professional skills. Students gain practical research experience, exposure to lab culture, new skills, and multi-level mentorship. Program components include hands-on research skills and experience, master class, poster symposium presentation, college letter of recommendation, and the possibilities of on-going research and publication in the Columbia Undergraduate Science Journal.

This program is part of Columbia's Youth Internships for Local High School Students commitment.
