Outreach Plan

I plan to take a group of interested ninth grade students to Drexel University during the school year to see the campus, learn about the engineering department, and participate in laboratory activities.  I think that this will be an extremely valuable experience since it will get the students to start thinking about their future goals and post-secondary education.  This trip will also help to give the students a feel for university life.  I hope to plan activities with the staff at Drexel that will also tie into topics we cover in the ninth grade science and math courses so they can see the application of what they learn in the classroom.
