Welcome to the Joint Science and Technology Institute (JSTI)

The 2014 dates have been announced. The JSTI will be held July 20 - Aug. 1, 2014 in Aberdeen, Md.

The Joint Science and Technology Institute for Students is a two-week, all expenses paid, residential program for current high school students in Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Virginia. The purpose of the program is to expose students to scientific research through hands-on projects, to enable students to work with real-world scientists, and to increase students’ awareness of career opportunities in related fields.

Here, you can access daily news, learn something about the participants in this summer’s program, review information about the projects and find pictures of participants “in action.”

Information will be updated frequently, so check back soon for more!


For the 2012 Summer Institute, 5 teachers and 25 students will participate.
