RISE Online STEM Research course

Research, Inquiry Skills & Experimentation (RISE)

The Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy, the world's leading teaching and learning laboratory for imagination and inquiry, is offering all 9-12th grade students the opportunity to pursue a higher-level, year long, in-depth study of a science topic of their choice, and to develop a research project. NEW - the RISE program is now open to 7th and 8th graders as well as high school students.

Many scientifically adventurous students can be stymied or restricted in their pursuit of research or design due to limited financial resources. The Board of Directors of the Illinois Junior Academy of Science supports students’ efforts by providing grants of up to $250 per year, per project. Send application and endorsement to the past president.

Applications will be processed on a first-come, first-funded basis until funding is depleted.
