Hi,

I'm a sophomore who already goes to Collegeconfidential (and to the CTY website_; but I'd still like to know if any of you know of any research opportunities/summer programs for HS sophomores. I'm going to apply to SUmmer Science Program and NASA SHARP - any other suggestions? I'm an Asian male, btw.

It means he isn't eligible to apply for programs geared toward minorities and women.

Simfishy, are you specifically interested in physics opportunities, or any science research opportunity?

ANy science research opportunity - unfortunately, due to the fact that sophomores cannot take a physics class, I am only taking a chemistry class at the current moment. But I'm also taking calculus - which can be a HUGE boost - since few sophs take calc..

Have you contacted universities near you? Try their websites. Many universities offer summer research opportunities for high school students, but they aren't always broadly advertised.

I think you have to already be a junior to be eligible for nasasharp..

Astronomy Camp
Summer Science Program
I've gone to the advanced camp at Astro Camp three times now (will probably be a counselor again this summer) and can assure you it's well worth going! Never made it out to SSP but I've heard very good things from those who have.

That is kind of dumb that chemistry isn't permitted before physics the two subjects are not at all sequential.

i dont know, i took physics in tenth grade(last year)

anyway, where are you located around? i have a friend who got into the carnegie institute summer of sophomore year, at the geophysical lab in DC.

anyhow, you don't have to have a formal application, if you want an internship you can just email around and ask for stuff

Not permitting him to take physics yet has nothing to do with requiring chemistry first, it's because if a school teaches physics properly, you need calculus first, so you take chemistry and calculus the same year, then take physics the next year.
