|Talented high school students in science and math, who are residents
of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,and currently enrolled in their Junior year, are invited to
apply for the Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Sciences.
The Pennsylvania Department of Education established the Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Sciences (PGSS) in order to provide a summer enrichment experience in the sciences and mathematics for talented Pennsylvania high school students, and to encourage them to pursue careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). The PGSS program provides instruction in biological sciences, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and computer science, with emphasis on collaborative learning and team research.
We gratefully acknowledge our co-sponsor, PGSS Campaign, Inc., alumni and friends of the Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Sciences, who have generously provided funds to match the grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education, making this year's PGSS program possible.
The PGSS program has been hosted by the Mellon College of Science, at Carnegie Mellon University each summer since its inception in 1982 until 2008. After a brief hiatus, PGSS will return again for the summer of 2013. Program dates: June 30 through August 3, 2013.
Breaking News, 12 April 2013: Thanks to the dedication and determination of the PGSS Campaign, we are able to accept a total of 60 students, instead of the 56 originally planned for this summer. The four additional students will be notified soon. Click the link below to read more information About the Program.
