A collaborative research competition for Long Island students in grades 9 and 10.
Mission and Purpose
The Northwell Health Medical Marvels Program was established by The Feinstein Institute for Medical Research and the Center for Workforce Readiness. The purpose is to encourage Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) career pathways for Long Island High School Students in 9th and 10th grades.
Our mission is to raise awareness of the multidisciplinary nature of STEM careers for students at all levels of academic prowess and interest, to encourage creative thinking, and to assist school districts and industry to develop assets and build capacity to improve the economic future of our students and the Long Island region.
NOTE: This competition is open to all and students do NOT need to be in structured science research programs.
The Medical Marvels program believes in the academic promise of all students and that by investing in their ideas the future health and well being of our community will be served. Further by investing in youth and giving them a sense of place and responsibility for problem solving in the community, a community ensures that it will have bright and capable future leaders for STEM careers.
