Research Topic 101 Program Overview

All participants in the Eureka Program are required to complete the Research Topic 101 course before they can enroll in any group workshops or engage in one-on-one research

The Eureka Research Program has documented over 500 rich and diverse research topic cases for high school students. These topics span multiple disciplines, including natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Each topic has been meticulously selected and designed, reflecting the research interests and innovative thinking of high school students. Choosing a feasible and valuable research topic is the first and most crucial step in scientific research. 

The "Research Topic 101" class is particularly well-suited for students who have little or no prior research experience. Tailored to provide a foundational understanding of various research areas, this introductory-level course equips students with the essential skills needed to explore and develop research topics. Its emphasis on guiding students through the process of selecting and refining research ideas makes it an invaluable resource for those seeking to build a strong academic foundation. Moreover, the skills acquired in the "Research Topic 101" course can significantly enhance a student's ability to apply for and participate in future academic opportunities, including summer schools and other extracurricular programs.

Course Outcomes

  • Interdisciplinary Perspective: This course transcends the boundaries of any single discipline, touching on topics in over 20 humanities and STEM fields.

  • Practical Orientation: Through real-world research topic case analyses and hands-on activities, students can enhance their skills in topic selection and cultivate the ability to address practical issues effectively.

  • Learning Outcomes: After attending the four webinar lectures and completing the post-class assignments, students are expected to generate a list of 2-5 potential research topics. Recognizing that engaging in research is a substantial extracurricular undertaking, we encourage students to delve deeper into these research topics if they possess the time and resources beyond their high school commitments. 

IMPORTANT: The "Research Topic 101" class is an introductory-level tutorial designed to provide students with a fundamental understanding of various research areas. Students will not be required to compose any research papers as part of the "Research Topic 101" class.
