Dear Parents, Teachers, and Mentors of High School Students,
We would like to announce an exciting opportunity for high school students interested in hands-on experience in STEM. The ASPIRE program, led by graduate students in the department of Polymer Science and Engineering at Umass Amherst, is a FREE outreach event that invites high school students to participate in a series of experiments in polymer chemistry, physics, and engineering for 5 Saturdays in January and early February 2018. Our goal is to create a platform for potential young scientists to experience the excitement of lab work, wrestle with scientific concepts, and have an opportunity to talk with graduate student mentors about our experience with science in college and beyond.
If you know a student (or multiple students!) in 10th – 12th grade who might be interested, please spread the word!
The ASPIRE 2018 application form (deadline December 1st) can be found at https://goo.gl/forms/HgZpCI UhfJGaVPsw1
