Event description

Description

The G. John DiGregorio Summer Science Program is a forensic science research program for high school students. The 8-week program, held during the summer, is designed to give high school students practical experience in laboratory safety, research design and experimentation, and analytical chemistry. Students work alongside graduate student mentors and are guided through original research projects. The mentoring relationship is modeled to aid high school students development of critical thinking, communication, presentation and scientific skills.


Benefits

The program prepares students for college and beyond, gives them the perspective, and opens their eyes to the opportunities in scientific careers. Learning opportunities include:

  • Forensic science instruction and demonstrations from practicing professionals
  • Chemical analysis using state-of-the-art instrumentation
  • Presentations at national and regional scientific conferences, including the Eastern Analytical Symposium (EAS) and the American Chemical Society (ACS)
  • Lifelong mentorship
