CEE Hosts Webinar on Top STEM Programs for High School Students

McLean, Virginia (March 18, 2021) –The Center for Excellence in Education (CEE) will host a 45-minute webinar on Zoom for high school students with a passion for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) on Saturday, April 24, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. ET. This webinar will highlight the benefits of and application process for the Center’s cost-free student programs USA Biology Olympiad (USABO) and Research Science Institute (RSI). Registration is open to U.S. high school students.

“This virtual event is an excellent opportunity to expose talented high school students to STEM and to the Center’s programs,” said Joann P. DiGennaro, President of the Center. Students may register for the cost-free Zoom session online here. Students from historically underrepresented groups are encouraged to register.


Each summer, 80 of the world’s most academically accomplished high school juniors gather at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology for the Center’s Research Science Institute. RSI is cost-free to students. It combines rigorous coursework, a research mentorship, and an unforgettable summer with STEM scholars


USABO is a four-tier competition that demands the very best of 9-12 grade students in biology theoretical and laboratory knowledge. Since CEE began administering the USABO, every member of the “USA Biolympiad Team” has medaled at the International Biology Olympiad. The registration fee is $95 per school regardless of the number of student participants. 

Both RSI and USABO were held virtually in 2020. The programs received national and international recognition.
