Mentored Experience to Expand Opportunities in Research version High School

A unique summer research experience at Children’s National Hospital

About Us

The METEOR v. HS team brings together educators, researchers, and scientists to support the next generation of biomedical researchers

Our Program

Mentorship Experience

Students are paired with a mentorship team for a six week experience at Children’s National where they are integrated into the team, collaborate on research, and build meaningful relationships.

Field Trips

DC is a hub of biomedical research. In past years, we have taken students to to the NIH, NLM, FDA, National Zoo, and CLASS Center at GWUSOM to see innovation in action.

Learning Experiences

Through shadowing and hands-on learning opportunities, students experience the inner workings of a top-ranked pediatric hospital, hear from doctors and academics at the forefront of the biomedical field, and build skills that support their future academic and career goals.


What our students and mentors are saying

“The strengths of this program were the connections it has with different positions throughout the hospital, and showing how a diverse group of people work in different fields”


One strength of this program is the various options in the medical field one has and the resourceful connections you can make at the hospital”


Our Students

Our students and fellows come from seven STEM-focused high schools around the DMV where a commitment to the sciences is demonstrated through classwork, hands-on projects and afterschool activities.
