The Summer Institute provides a critical thinking forum for rising high school students to explore the big questions at the intersection of the humanities and cognitive sciences. Through daily lectures, interactive discussions, research exploration, and collaborative activities with OSU students and faculty across campus, students will learn central aspects of how this interdisciplinary study can work together to help us understand how we imagine, artistically create, and materially transform the world in which we live.
