A life-changing experience ...
The Summer Science Program has been inspiring gifted young scientists for over 50 years, by accelerating their intellectual and social development.

The Program takes place on two campuses: New Mexico Institute of Technology in Socorro, and University of Colorado in Boulder. At each campus, 36 rising high school seniors complete a challenging research project in celestial mechanics.

Many alumni have gone on to distinguish themselves at selective universities, and to positions of leadership in their chosen careers.


... made possible by its own alumni
Established in 1959, SSP is been operated by a unique, independent non-profit, managed and largely funded by alumni, former faculty, parents, and others who want to help inspire the leaders of tomorrow. Join us!
