Mision and Vision


To advocate for and provide early research participation opportunities for high school and college students in both curricular and non-curricular settings. 


We believe that the conventional approach and attitude about when students can participate in real research is outdated in today’s global innovation economy.   So, our vision is .....

  • To champion universal adoption of early research participation as sound educational practice and as a prudent  and  sustainable workforce development strategy for the global innovation economy,
  • To ensure that every American youth has hands-on engagement in the processes of research, discovery and innovation,
  • To design, develop and provide authentic curricular and non-curricular early research opportunities,
  • To organize, network and mobilize stake holders in support of early research participation initiatives,
  • To develop seamless research transitions and collaborations between secondary and tertiary science institutions,
  • To foster early establishment of independent scientific careers,
  • To create a culture that places the highest value on research, discovery and innovation, and
  • To serve as a model of early research participation.
