The Ingenuity Research Curriculum is a three-year program spanning the sophomore to senior years, serving as an incubator for future scientists, engineers and mathematicians. During the Research Practicum experience, students work with mentors at local colleges, universities, and other research institutions to develop independent research projects. Students contribute to the body of research and, in some cases, have their work acknowledged in scientific papers. They are required to submit their work to national pre-college competitions. For some, this will mean entering the Siemens Competition and the Regeneron (formerly Intel) Science Talent Search, two of the nation’s most prestigious, and financially rewarding, contests. Juniors and seniors submit their research to local science fairs as well.
Each year, the school year culminates the Research Practicum with an event called the research symposium. The Ingenuity Research Symposium gives students who have participated in research to showcase their work and present their findings to peers, faculty, staff, and parents. It is a highly anticipated event and draws a large crowd from the Poly community.
