Review for SUMMER SCIENCE PROGRAM, Cary, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was a TA in 76 and 77. The two classes were like mini Harvards, Caltechs, or Stanfords. The students were exceptional and all went on to top schools. They also were not all stamped from the same academic mold. Some were brilliant mathematicians (one is a professor of math at Stanford). Others became physicians, scientists, engineers. But some entered other professions that were not just science - law, journalism, business. Putting all these students together in the same place produced incredible results. And in the end, not all students wanted to become scientists or engineers. They learned a lot about who they were during those two months, and formed life long friendships. It was, and continues to be, a remarkable program, a program that is 50 years old.
