The 2017 Research Science Initiative (RSI) Tsinghua application is now open, please click here. Due to logistical issues, including the closure of schools for the New Year’s Holiday, the RSI Tsinghua application’s submission deadline has been moved to February 28, 2017.

RSI Tsinghua ‘17 will be in session from July 9 to August 19, 2017.
 

In 2015, CEE and Tsinghua University launched a Research Science Initiative (RSI) modeled after CEE's prestigious program at MIT.  Following the resounding success of our inaugural year, the Center for Excellence in Education (CEE) and Tsinghua University are pleased to announce the continued growth of this joint program.  The performance of last year’s students was beyond expectations, with one student’s work, co-authored with his mentor, recently published in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society Letter.   
 

RSI at Tsinghua is a unique summer program for high achieving Chinese students in the 10th and 11th grades. It combines one week of on-campus course work in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) with cutting-edge individualized STEM research projects.  Students master each step of the research process: from literature review to the design, execution, and outcome analysis of original experiments.

First week courses are taught by leading faculty from both Tsinghua University and top US colleges and universities.  Scientists and engineers from Tsinghua and alumni of the RSI program at MIT guide the students through individually developed projects in the students' particular areas of interest.

At the end of the four-and-a-half weeks of research, students present their findings in written and oral presentations before an eminent panel of judges. Awards are given for the top five oral and written projects, which are compiled and distributed to stakeholders and academics in science and technology.

Selection for RSI Tsinghua is highly competitive. For more information, contact , Manager of International Strategy and Alumni Engagement at the Center for Excellence in Education. John Dell, Senior Teacher of Advanced Physics courses at Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology in Alexandria Virginia, USA, will be the Co-Director of RSI Tsinghua 2016.

The Center for Excellence in Education will work in collaboration with ASDAN China to outreach to 10th and 11th grade students at senior secondary schools in China for applications to the Research Science Initiative (RSI) at Tsinghua University.

I loved the ‘anything is possible’ attitude and the spirit of interdisciplinary collaboration I found in the American labs
