CURIE Academy is a one-week program for high school girls who excel in math and science. The focus is on rising juniors and seniors who may not have had prior opportunities to explore engineering, but want to learn more about it in an interactive atmosphere. This summer connect with Cornell University and explore the many possibilities awaiting you in engineering. Find out more about the program!
