Fall 2016 Semester Research Seminar Offerings

For the Fall of 2016, there are six different offerings for the seminar. You may contact the Teacher listed or complete the email form below to get further information or be directed to the schools that would suit your needs. Each school will conduct the program following their normal standards and practices and may utilize the materials and resources provided provided by BRIEF and InStAR as it suits their program.


Generally the seminar will require 1 to 1.5 hours of class time per week for the semester and a varying amount of other time averaging about 2 hours per week. This depends very much on the quality of teamwork you are able to develop, the pedagogy that is employed, and the experience of your team members.

Community college fees range from $1 for California high school students, to about $50 for other California residents, to $200 for out-of-state students.

Registration for the Fall 2016 Seminar closes September 20. Go to the Registration page to sign up.
