COSMOS Clusters

COSMOS students enroll in one course "cluster" for the duration of the four-week program. Each cluster focuses on a different STEM topic and consists of two concurrent and complementary classes and a transferable skills course that focuses on science communication. Each cluster will enroll 20 to 25 students.

Discovery Lectures

Aside from attending their cluster course each day, every COSMOS student will be required to attend our Discovery Lecture series, where a variety of renowned scientists and engineers host lectures on a plethora of research topics covering a wide range of science, mathematics, and engineering topics.Learn More

Final Research Project

For the duration of the 4-week program, with the help of their course cluster faculty, each student will identify and develop a research topic specific to their area of study. Students will have access to university resources including teaching laboratories and libraries to perform the research necessary to complete their project. As a requirement of finishing the COSMOS program, each student is required to present their final project to their COSMOS peers in the STEM symposium on the last day of the program.
