Today, July 4th, 2023, is the first day of the CNIW researched based summer camp. This is the second year CNIW hosts a research-based summer camp for senior high school and junior university students. In recent years, research has become one of the most important ways for high school and college students to spend their time during the summer. Research experience is a distinctive advantage in the college and graduate school admission process. A research project has an even higher impact for young students if the program that they attend is selective, or the research they do is published or reaches a broader audience.
The Centre for New Immigrant Well-Being (commonly known by its acronym CNIW) is a Not-for-Profit-Organization in Canada. We initiated the CNIW Supernova Research-oriented Summer Camp, which is a two-month comprehensive research program, giving students the opportunity to Gain research knowledge and experiences from top university researcher and educators; and horn research skills and soft skills for successful academic and career planning in advance!
Highlights of this Summer Camp
2023 CNIW research-based summer camp lasts two months which includes several parts: a 7-session lecture-based Bootcamp, a series of development seminars, and a student-led reading club, as well as a two-month research projects involvement that exposes young students to fundamental concepts and research skills and guides them to get involved in a socially impactful research project.
The camp students will have opportunities to gain:
- PERSONALIZED INSTRUCTION on research skills
- COLLABORATIVE LEARNING opportunities
- Real life Research projects involvement
- Scientifically validated personality tests (such as: DOPE)
- Academic and career planning
- Soft skills improvement
Participation is hybrid mode. In the fist two weeks, a 7-session in-person lectures exposes students to fundamental concepts in public health, applications of core research skills and guides them to work on a hands-on project in a domain of their choice.
In the meanwhile, there will be student-led reading club and online/offline advanced seminars along the summer, inviting academic researchers and scientists from universities, public research institutions, and industries to broaden students’ horizon and prepare them for their future academic and career development.
More importantly, students will apply the research skills they learned on a mentor-led research project, with the goal of presenting their findings at the conclusion of the program.
