Outreach/REHSS Program

What is the REHSS Program?

The “Research Experiences for High School Students” (REHSS) is a plant biotechnology educational program created in 2012 and dedicated to introducing Oklahoma high-school students to modern biology. The goal of the REHSS program is to grow the biological interest of high school students engaged in Advanced Placement Biology by enhancing collaboration between students and OU research faculties. Students will receive the training in modern biology as well as the inspiration necessary to give them direction for their collegiate training and career development.

The REHSS program is divided in workshops organized in the state of Oklahoma and a summer research program organized at the University of Oklahoma. Working 6 to 10 weeks in OU laboratories, Oklahoma high school students receive the guidance and skills necessary to become highly competitive in their undergraduate education and in joining the STEM workforce.
