    For high school students and current high school STEM teachers, JSTI is a two-week research experience. The middle school JSTI program lasts one-week. The goal of JSTI is to provide students and teachers with an opportunity to engage in hands-on activities, team building, and research projects mentored by professional researchers while also gaining exposure to various STEM careers.

    There are JSTI opportunities in two locations: New Mexico (JSTI West) and Maryland (JSTI East). Eligibility for each program is different.
