This page is where you can go to access our online program. We will post lectures, modules, and other information here. As we create more content we will be adding them to this page so please check back if you are interested.

Hillman Academy Final Presentations

Please join us for our Research Presentation series. Students from this years Virtual Academy Program will share the work they did on their projects over the course of the last 7 weeks. These presentations will begin at 9:00 AM on August 7th and will be avaiable after their conclusions on our YoutTube Channel.

Lectures and Modules

These lectures and modules by themselves are not the full Hillman Academy expereience, we strongly beleive that one-on-one mentoring in an authentic research environment is the best way to learn and expereince STEM. However we do hope that these online offerings will whet the appetite of those interested in STEM and research and serve as a jumping off point to go deeper in the field.

Since these materials are being offered publicly we have to restrict video and audio privledges to only students within the program. Students and viewers outside the program can still comment and participate via Youtube, we will have somoene monitoring the streams and relaying any questions.
