Research

Hi, I'm a high school rising senior, and I was looking for beginner research opportunities that were free of cost, or not as costly. I am very new to the idea of research and I'd like to start off with something not to complex. Could you recommend me some summer research organizations that might be helpful?

Hi, I don't know many free-of-cost research organizations, but I do know that one way to get a research opportunity would be through universities. You could try looking up any unversities near you and the professors in whatever field you are interested in. I think that you can also see what type of research the professors are doing. Then, once you have that information, if you are interested in working with the professor, you can cold email them. The professor may or may not accept you, but it is still worth a shot. 

I also know one research organization called Polygence, so you can look them up and see if you would be interested in that as well. Sorry, this is all I know, but I hope it helps at least a little.
