The G/T Intern/Mentor Program is a college-level course in which students design an original research study or creative production. Students study off-campus with a professional mentor in a self-selected area of interest. Student research or creative production focuses on contributing new knowledge to the field of study. The G/T Resource Teacher facilitates classroom and internship experiences, focusing on advanced-level research methodologies and college-level writing and oral presentation skills. At the mentor site, students apply the knowledge and skills they have learned in an authentic, professional environment.
Among the colleges that some of our GT Research graduates have attended in recent years are:
Princeton, MIT, University of Pennsylvania, Duke, Johns Hopkins, UMCP Honors Program, Univesity of Virginia, USAF Academy, Northwestern, University of Michigan
— Kwame Owusu-Boaitey MRHS graduate, UMBC student
— Dr. Kyle Feldman, MRHS graduate
Would your child be interested in a Mentor class where they would have a free opportunity to see what it would be like to be in that field?
Would it be helpful to your child to have an electronic online portfolio of original research and a recommendation from a professional in the field to show to college admissions officers?
Would an Independent Research class where scholarly research is done in conjunction with an adviser in that field benefit your student?
Would it benefit your child to have a class where they can go beyond what an AP class can offer them?
If you answered “Yes!” to any of these questions, please attend the G/T Information Night on Tuesday, December 8 at the Marriotts Ridge HS Media Center to learn more about the G/T Research program at our school.
