The Science of Discovery

Contemporary research techniques and theory. Group discussion and college-level laboratory experience. Relevant, cutting-edge topics. High school students throughout the region enjoy doing hands-on science at the Three Rivers Science Symposium. It's a day that will make a huge difference in sharpening your skills, not to mention introducing you to students at the university level - and you are invited to participate!

Spaces are limited.

This fall's symposium will enroll a limited number of highly qualified high school sophomore, junior and senior students.  Participation is limited so you can work in small groups with our university faculty. Contact our office today by calling 260-399-8067, or emailing, with any questions.
