Free summer academy for middle school girls at Emory University that focuses on real data from cancer patients and how to discover what causes cancer. The students will learn about cancer, how new data are generated, and how these huge data sets (big data) are mined. This will be a hands-on research experience (not a coding camp). We will also tour real Emory laboratories and meet with scientists at Emory.

This summer we will have 2 sessions that students can apply for. The June session will be take place over 2 weeks and the July session will be an accelerated 1 week course. Both sessions will be led by Emory scientists and staff.

The June session will be held June 15th-26th 2020 from 9AM to 3PM.

The July session will be held July 13th-17th 2020 from 9AM to 5PM.

*Attendance is required for the entire session.
