Laboratory work and placement
Summer between Junior and Senior Years: Students must do 200 hours (approximately five weeks) of laboratory work during the summer. These weeks need not be contiguous, but this must first be approved by the laboratory and the Program Director. Students working in local laboratories must attend regular “check-in sessions” with staff and other Program students. These sessions will be held on the Peddie campus or in the local area. Students who are doing work outside the Hightstown area and who cannot reasonably be expected to come to Peddie must connect weekly with the Program Director via Skype.
To ensure a safe, productive, and high-quality laboratory experience for students, all labs must be thoroughly vetted and approved by the Director. Currently, students have been placed at Princeton, Rutgers, the University of Pennsylvania, and Columbia, as well as in private labs.
