Have you ever wondered how university research would translate to a high school environment?

Are you curious to see what high school students can accomplish if given a little bit of University support and guidance?

If so, then check out The University of Texas High School Research Initiative posters!


The High School Research Initiative (HRI) provides a dual-enrollment research course for local high schools. The first part of the HRI science course is open inquiry, encouraging students may ask and answer their own scientific questions. Students design and perform their own research projects, collect and analyze data, as well as draw conclusions, and present their research findings. This work is showcased at the regional science fair! The second part of the course partners the high school classrooms with UT faculty in an ongoing, long-term research project. These collaborative projects are on display today at the UT Undergraduate Research Forum!

We want to know what you think! Please tell us you stopped by, what you think of the posters, and any other comments you’d like to add here:  tinyurl.com/2021URF-HRI

HRI students, we look forward to seeing you again today at the HRI Conference from 2-4 pm. Please see your Canvas site for details.
