Bridge between Mount Saint Joseph Academy and Drexel University
During the 2008-2009 school year, I will encourage students to participate in the following:
The College of Engineering Summer Mentorship Program:
"A dynamic, three-week research experience that provides high school students with a unique opportunity to work in a Drexel laboratory on an individualized research project. In addition to the educational experience that research provides, students will also gain a competitive edge in the college application office and foster relationships with their faculty mentors as well as like-minded high school students."
The College of Engineering Summer Music Technology Program:
"An innovative, one-week learning experience that provides twenty high school sophomores and juniors with a unique opportunity to learn about music production technology and digital audio from Drexel faculty and students. This program approaches music and audio technology from the perspective of engineering, mathematics and science."
In addition, my mentor, Kimberly Cook-Chennault, Ph.D., is interested in visiting my classroom and doing engineering laboratory activities with my physics students. The dates and topics of these visits will be determined later.
