The program is open to high school students in public, private, or parochial schools. Home-schooled students with high school standing are also welcome.

It is helpful to have had a high school physics course and a couple of years of algebra before participating, but these are not required.

A unique e-mail address is required to complete the registration.

Adults, younger students, and teachers

Please refer to the guidelines on this page.


We encourage and welcome parents and siblings to attend SMP on graduation day. We have a parallel Q&A session for parents (usually in Curia II). Siblings may attend either the Q&A or the final lecture (space permitting).
