Scientific Tools for Making Your Ideas into Convincing Arguments

How do people make a case for their ideas and opinions, and then communicate them to others effectively? In this Teen Research Program, you will develop this skill! It comes in handy when you’re debating political points with peers, persuading teachers (or even your parents!), and especially when explaining concepts in areas of STEM. Together we will explore a series of fun, puzzle-like activities. You will learn how to turn your thinking into a convincing argument that others can understand. We will “pull back the curtain” and see where the free-associative-thinking overlaps with the linear logical threads of proof, which are relevant to geometry, mathematics, and several other fields of science. You will gain skills to design and showcase your own proof on a subject of your choice, while adding valuable experience to your college application or career path.
