Mision and Vision

Mission

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

Vision

We believe that the conventional approach and attitude about when students can participate in real research is outdated in today’s global innovation economy.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