IvyOnline Academy (IOA) provides online research opportunities and training for high school students. The research is conducted in collaboration with top-ranked universities. By providing opportunities to engage in research, IOA hopes to inspire students in countries around the world in the sciences and to level the college application playing field for students who don’t have opportunities to conduct research through their school or other after-school programs. IOA is currently being developed into a social enterprise, with support from the Cornell startup accelerator for students, eLab. The enterprise will encompass online courses and online research programs to equip high school students with research skills that are essential for their pursuit of higher education.
Normalize high school research education.
Connecting educators and students across
the globe through world-class experiential
education that will shape the next
generation of scientists.
We want to create equitable research opportunity to allow students to pursue their academic interests in and out of the classroom.
Education is not one size fit all, so we aim to create a curriculum that adjusts to the students needs.
Our course curriculums are no secret. It is only the first step in research education. Education should be no secret to curious students.
Every student has their inner fire with a true desire to pursue a specific interest. We aim to foster those interests to start the next generation of changemakers.
Ideas are the building block to research. There is not such thing as a bad idea, just a bad direction. What is your community?
We would love for people to join our cause to make research education the norm. If you want to change something, we would love to incorporate you into the process to fix the problem.
