Harvard picSpend your summer at the Harvard Center for Nanoscale Systems performing cutting-edge research in our world-class laboratories. Focus on an in-depth research project while exploring multidisciplinary research topics. 

Participants are part of a large, diverse research community through organized and informal interactions with students, mentors, and faculty.  We provide a focused effort for mentoring and training undergraduates in several exciting branches of science and engineering.
