Science Survival Kit Summer Semester (SSKSS)  is a 6-week-long summer program by Rhizome Association , taking place at the Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences , Split, Croatia, from July 16th to August 26th 2018.
The aim of SSKSS interdisciplinary learning-through-research program is to bring students the necessary skills and mindset that would help them address the research questions in natural sciences and jumpstart their careers. We use research-based teaching and an innovative pedagogical approach to offer students a unique training that develops both research and transversal skills essential in the 21st century: learning to learn, creativity, critical thinking, collaborative work and the use of modern technology in working environments.
The goal of the Science Survival Kit program is to gather students from around the world and learn in a stimulating interdisciplinary and international setting at the Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences. This program will be accepting 20 students from diverse backgrounds. No prior experience in natural sciences is necessary to join the program, but we will look for highly motivated individuals who are able to contribute to a collaborative project-based environment. Since all courses will be conducted in English, we expect the students to be fluent in English.
