Welcome to Brown Science Prep

Mentoring Program

Brown Science Prep is thrilled to launch our new one-on-one mentoring program. This program will pair current high schooler seniors with BSP mentors for two years (i.e. through seniors' first year out of high school). If you are interested in participating in this program, please complete both the application form and the release form and hand them to us at the next BSP lesson you attend. For more information, see the details on the release form (or feel free to email us at brownscienceprep@brown.edu). 

Forging Connections Through Science

How does the brain work? What’s the best way to pursue a clean energy future?  How can light be both a particle and a wave?  And what’s inside a fetal pig?

Fueled by questions like these, Brown Science Prep (BSP) brings together Rhode Island high schoolers and Brown students to explore science through interactive lessons, demonstrations, and experiments with real-world applications. 

The program aims to promote mentoring relationships between undergraduates and high school students, utilizing small group discussions to emphasize college access, community engagement, and critical analysis of the world around oneself.
