The FSST’s Online Research Co-op Program was developed by the Foundation for Student Science and Technology (FSST) and the Federal Science and Technology Cluster (science.gc.ca/course) to help students transition into post-secondary studies. The course is currently available to all public and public catholic high school students in the province of Ontario as our program's funding comes from the Ontario Ministry of Education.
This course matches highly motivated grade 11 & 12 students with a researcher in a field of their interest. Students work on a research project under the guidance of their mentor for which they will receive 1 to 2 high school credits. During the course, students will learn skills in scientific literacy and writing, as well as achieve higher competency in literature searches and other research skills.
They also have the opportunity to develop essential skills and explore career and educational options. Students will write a scientific manuscript as a culminating project, which they can submit for publication consideration to The Journal of Student Science and Technology (FSST’s award-winning, peer reviewed academic publication).

Limited space available. Interested students must apply before November 30th. Approval by administration is required. Students will be emailed by the office for further details.
***Please note: Co-operative education courses cannot count towards university entrance courses (ie. they cannot be used as one of the six courses required for university entrance).
(Prerequisite: The course prerequisite depends on the research project chosen. Be in good academic standing. A recommendation from a teacher is also beneficial.)
