One hundred high school students from 29 states have been named winners in the second year of PBS LearningMedia’s and Stand Up To Cancer’s Emperor Science Award program. The Emperor Science Award program is an initiative designed to encourage high school students to explore careers in science, specifically cancer research and care, through a unique mentoring opportunity.
The 100 Emperor Science Award recipients will have an opportunity to conduct research in a lab, virtually, or a combination of both, working with an esteemed scientist on a rewarding multi-week cancer research project, will receive a Google Chrome computer to enhance their studies and to facilitate mentor access for those students who live at a distance from their mentor’s research facility, and a $1,500 stipend for expenses.
The Emperor Science Award Program extends the learning and outreach for the PBS documentary, Ken Burns Presents CANCER: THE EMPEROR OF ALL MALADIES A Film by Barak Goodman.
