The C-PHOM High School Research Program is a program that allows students to participate in research within the Center for Photonic and Multiscale Nanomaterials (C-PHOM) at the University of Michigan. The program begins in June with orientation, training, and matching of lab groups. The 8-week residential component on the UM campus begins mid-June. During the Fall, participants will continue research with UM advisors, preparing presentations and papers for science fair competitions. The local, regional, and national science fair competitions are discussed during the program.
