High School research: Project SEED

The NBIC supports a new program enabling high school students in Philadelphia participate in an eight-week chemistry research program. Project SEED is designed to provide students with a real-world experience in science research, college exposure, and an opportunity to develop professional and work-related skills. With support from the ACS Project SEED and matching funds from Penn’s Provost Diversity Fund, three high school juniors worked on projects dealing with chemical modeling and simulations, electrospinning, and nanocrystal synthesis. Students also gained skills in science writing, use of spreadsheets to analyze data, and presentation skills. The program will continue in 2010 with four new students.
