The Humanities and Cognitive Sciences High School Summer Institute

The Center for Cognitive and Brain Sciences is a proud co-sponsor of the annual Humanities and Cognitive Sciences High School Summer Institute in partnership with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and we place a great emphasis on ensuring a socioeconomically and culturally diverse class. This week-long day camp provides a critical thinking forum for rising high school students to explore critical questions at the intersection of the humanities and cognitive sciences.

Through daily lectures, interactive discussions, research exploration, and collaborative activities with OSU students and faculty across campus, scholars will learn central aspects of how interdisciplinary work between the two fields helps us understand how we imagine, artistically create, and materially transform the world in which we live. Additionally, scholars have the unique opportunity to develop a group research presentation on a topic of their choosing, which they will present as a culminating activity for the Institute. The 2018 Summer Institute will take place from August 6th-10th. For further, updated details please visit the Summer Institute website or email Stephanie Fowler at fowler.40@osu.edu.
