IvyWise Live: Engaging in STEM Activities and Projects Virtually
Many extracurricular activities and summer programs still on pause due to COVID-19, and students need to creatively pivot to find innovative ways to identify areas of interest and explore them both in and out of the classroom. Colleges want to build well-rounded classes made up of specialists, and creative activities and independents projects are the best way to build those specialties and stand out in the college admissions process. Join IvyWise college admissions counselor McGreggor, who specializes in STEM and pre-med students, and IvyWise tutor Brian as they share insights on how high school students interested in pursuing STEM degrees in college can explore their passions with creative independent projects, extracurricular activities, summer programs, and research projects. They’ll share real life student profiles and do live brainstorming sessions with attendees, allowing viewers the opportunity to have their questions answered about the best-fit activities for their goals and interests. We will provide all registrants with a link to a recording of the webinar after the event.

Want to have your profile evaluated by McGreggor and Brian? When registering for the event check “yes” on the “Do you wish to participate in the live brainstorming session” question and include information on your interests, current activities, and college admissions goals. We will select a few profiles beforehand to cover in the presentation. Please note that the profiles will be kept anonymous during the presentation.
