Humanities & STEM Research at Harker
Students at Harker have two major research programs that enable upper school students to pursue the wonder of science and unique topics in the humanities through serious, original research.
The upper school science department offers a wide variety of programs to support students in all phases of their science investigations, including research coursework, clubs, after-school supervised lab access, summer internship guidance, and research competition coordination. For more details, see the Harker science research hub website.
Harker's annual science research symposium began in 2006, and provides a venue for student-generated research to be shared with the community. This annual event is proudly held in Harker's science and technology center, Nichols Hall. For more information about Harker's science research programs, contact Anita Chetty, science department chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since their foundings in 2009 and 2011, respectively, The John Near Excellence in History Education Endowment and The Mitra Family Endowment for the Humanities have become symbols of the Harker community's dedication to helping students pursue a broad array of interests. The Near endowment provides students with opportunities to do high-level academic research on their chosen historical topics, and the Mitra endowment expands research opportunities into philosophy, languages and the arts.
