What is Minnetonka Research?
A dedicated research experience for highly advanced high school students interested in authentic research.

The program provides students the opportunity to pursue authentic research driven by their own questions and interests. It connects students with leaders in academia and industry to inspire and guide them as they develop 21st Century Skills (communication, critical thinking, creativity, collaboration). In doing so, Minnetonka Research prepares students for full engagement in college courses and leading-edge careers in fields of inquiry.

This on-site lab opportunity, unique to any area high school, connects accelerated students with industry partners and Ph.D. level mentors with expertise in the student’s area of research during the school year.

Through the Minnetonka Research program, students have the opportunity to ask questions that matter to them. They collaborate with industry partners and connect with university mentors.
