My daughter deepened her curiosity, gained subject matter expertise, and was inspired by her highly qualified mentor, Anne. She finished with a quality project she is proud of and that will showcase her interest in neuroscience.

One of the best things is to see Finn come out of this program not only with academic confidence but the validation of 'I can do this'. This is a wonderful gift.

Lily's experience in Polygence can not be replicated, and certainly not within the confines of a traditional school setting. I am so grateful she got this opportunity to work with such excellent mentors. Thank you for everything. I know she will never forget this time she had with Alexis and GP

My son had the best experience with Polygence. Not only did he learn a lot, but he also had fun working on his project. His mentor was very knowledgeable, accessible, supportive and friendly. I highly recommend the program!

Adrian R.

Scripps Ranch High School

My mentor was very flexible throughout the project, giving me the freedom to find an interesting project to research and model. He provided the support to allow me to complete a successful project. His balance of flexibility with structure allowed me to become experienced modelling a random walk pattern, learning to write by telling a story, and analyzing data.

Miranda D.

Episcopal School of Jacksonville

My mentor was not just an incredible scientist but also an incredible person! I was coming off of a canceled hospital internship due to COVID-19, but research led me to Polygence. My mentor insisted on making sure that my project was something I would be proud of. I could rely on her for more than just project advice. Her guidance was amazing, I would not trade it for anything.

Sia S.

Albany Academy for Girls

Not only did my mentor encourage me to read challenging research papers and reflect on them, but helped me to understand information that I found confusing by talking through it with me during sessions. I would like to thank her for guiding me through writing my first formal review paper on machine learning in cancer treatment, she has been a great mentor!
