16-18 Year Olds.

For the first time in our history, we have opened the Summit to 16-18 year olds!


We believe that by allowing a younger audience to attend, we can help inspire their career and university course choices and show them a side of the social sciences that they may have never seen before. Events and activities like these are often limited to university students or older, but we think that in order to increase diversity within the social sciences, it is important to expose younger students to all they have to offer.
