The Lincoln Foundation Math & Science Program is a four week institute held at the University of Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky, that engages approximately one hundred (100) high school students in a real world, laboratory setting where they conduct research and scientific investigations on local environmental issues. The Math & Science Program provides an interdisciplinary, inquiry-based curriculum that prepares students for their next grade in high school and college readiness as they develop research, problem-solving and critical thinking skills while learning about project design and how to present sustainable solutions.
