Outreach

Summer Research Experience for High School students: We work with several local High Schools, such as Brooklyn Technical High School (BTHS), The City College High School for Math Science and Engineering, and others with whom we have already developed long lasting interactions. Students are encouraged to participate in statewide and national competitions such as INTEL, ISEF, and NYSEF. The HS students present their results at the summer-end Poster Presentation.

Our Summer Interns Are:

Recruitment Activities: IDEALS Faculty and Students participate in visits to universities and conferences at which they disseminate activities of IDEALS and promote interest in the Center to potential incoming students.

 

Outreach to the community: our students will develop materials science demonstrations and displays to exhibit in the ASRC Center for Discovery and Education (CDE). Our students serve as ambassadors and help the ASRC engage the community by hosting schools and other community groups to visit the ASRC-CDE.
