It was great to see your article on science programs for kids and teens in the summer [The Scientist, Feb. 18, 1991, page 20]. With our first program, called Summer Science, two years ago, we thought we were unique in offering girls entering grades 8, 9, or 10 two weeks of science research on projects they thought up themselves. I'm happy to see other programs for the same age group, and I wonder if we're still unique in allowing participants this open-endedness.

This year we run from July 7-19, for both boarders and day students.
