George A. Jeffrey NanoExplorers Program


The George A. Jeffrey NanoExplorers Program promotes nanotechnology-based education for high school students entering the 10th-12th grades. The goal of the program is to inspire high school students to become productive scientists and engineers by enabling them to do original research work. Once admitted into the program, students are able to join a faculty member’s research lab based on their interest. They are taught the skills needed to test their ideas, and how to team, and are encouraged to play with new concepts and to invent. As much as possible, they are treated like any other member of the lab. The work they do is associated with actual funded programs at the university and they work to deliver real results.
