On January 11, 2018, Winsor's annual Summer Science Internship Night served as both a celebration and an enticing invitation for future interns and their families.  

Every summer, the Winsor program provides an incredibly rare opportunity for high school-aged students.  A passionate group of Winsor sophomores and juniors are connected with mentors doing cutting-edge research, many from the world-class laboratories of the school's neighbors in the Longwood Medical Area.  

At the January event, 2017 student participants shared their eye-opening experiences through both an informal poster session and panel discussion, organized by Winsor's Kim Ramos and Rachel Bricklin. 

Last summer's interns—and their topics—were:
