Stanford Future Advancers of Science and Technology

Andrew Hill and James Lick students and mentors

FAST is a program in which Stanford University graduate students mentor Future Advancers of Science and Technology (FAST) toward achieving their goals of answering open questions in science and engineering clever solutions to problems in their society. High school sophomores, juniors, and seniors of Andrew P Hill High School and James Lick High School meet with Stanford PhD students during afternoons of two Saturdays each month. The goal is to brainstorm projects and carry out experiments / build prototypes between September and February. In late January through March, high school students present their work at local science fairs, state science fairs, and at a Symposium at Stanford University.


Stanford FAST Symposium

UPDATE: The FAST Symposium has been cancelled due to concerns about COVID-19. This decision comes from Stanford EH&S, the Office of Student Engagement, and the working with minors task force. We will try to reschedule the event for later in the spring if the situation improves to the point where that is appropriate according to the relevant authorities, and we will let you know if we are able to do so. On behalf of all of our students and mentors, thanks again for your willingness to participate in the symposium.


Last FAST Session: Session 13 - March 14, 2020
