This is a 9-day workshop for rising high school seniors interested in

Participants in the workshop will attend two mathematical courses and in the afternoon work in groups on an exploration topic related to a course of their choice. Throughout the workshop students will meet undergraduate students, graduate students and faculty of the Mathematics Department.

In addition to the mathematical activities, various other activities are planned: all the workshop attendees will participate in the "Women in Science" seminar every afternoon, organized jointly with the "Women and Mathematics" program at the Institute for Advanced Study; Princeton undergraduates will host a discussion panel about applying to college; a mathematics-themed tour of campus, ...

Workshop participants will be housed in one of the colleges on campus (chaperoned by a Princeton female math major), and thus get a glimpse of life as a Princeton undergrad.

Every participant will receive full support for travel and accommodation, to any reasonable extent.

In case of conflict with high school exams, Princeton University will try to make arrangements to have the exam proctored at Princeton.
