Bringing students to the summit is an excellent way to introduce them to high quality science with practical applications and networking opportunities they won’t likely experience in traditional college classes. But, there are definitely some logistical mountains to climb. We want to help! In this forum, we will take a look at the Penn State model, including a review of their syllabus, an overview of their funding, and best practices for traveling with groups of students. We hope this presentation and follow-up discussion will inspire you to generate a “summit course” for your own curriculum.
