S.T.A.R. Labs

SARSEF removes the classroom walls, engaging students in the broader community!

🔬 SARSEF/ UArizona S.T.A.R. Lab: Mentorship and Consultation for High School Student Research

Committed to in-depth long term research? Does your student have 4-10 hours a week to dedicate to an investigation with a professional researcher or scientist mentor? Applications for S.T.A.R. Labs have closed for the 2020-2021 school year, but keep an eye on this page for more information on the 2021-2022 school year.

The application requires teacher recommendations. Once accepted, we will match the student with a mentor. For the 2020-2021 academic year, the program will run virtually from September 29, 2020- January 31, 2021, although the S.T.A.R. Lab is a physical lab located in BioSciences West on the University of Arizona campus. For 2020-2021, all mentorships and research projects will be conducted virtually.

 In S.T.A.R. Lab’s inaugural year (2019-2020), twenty area high school students worked with 14 different University of Arizona mentors to complete research projects, which were presented at the SARSEF Science and Engineering Fair in March of 2020.
