Summer Science & Engineering Program for High School Girls

The Summer Science & Engineering Program (SSEP) is a month-long summer enrichment program that brings approximately 100 girls from around the globe to Smith College to actively participate in science and engineering. Since 1990, nearly 1,800 girls representing 46 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and 53 foreign countries have participated in the SSEP. After the program, girls report that they return to high school better prepared to tackle tough science courses, and better informed about what to expect in college. Participants work alongside Smith faculty to explore the world in new ways through hands-on research courses.

In addition to doing great science, girls in the SSEP make new friends and get a taste of college life.
