TJ’s Science and Technology Research Laboratories form the cornerstone of its college-level program. Every senior conducts original research in one (or more) of TJ’s Labs or pursuant to the School’s Mentorship Program. Underclassmen can apply to use the new JUMP Lab to work research into their school day.
