Talented high school students in science and math, who are residents of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania,and currently enrolled in their Junior year, are invited to apply for the Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Sciences.

The Pennsylvania Department of Education established the Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Sciences (PGSS) in order to provide a summer enrichment experience in the sciences and mathematics for talented Pennsylvania high school students, and to encourage them to pursue careers in the fields of science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). The PGSS program provides instruction in biological sciences, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and computer science, with emphasis on collaborative learning and team research.

We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Team Pennsylvania Foundation and our co-sponsor, PGSS Campaign, Inc., alumni and friends of the Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Sciences, who have generously provided funds to match the grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Education, making this year's PGSS program possible.

The PGSS program is hosted by the Mellon College of Science, at Carnegie Mellon University . Program dates: June 28 through August 1, 2015.
