Oregon State University Summer Experience in Science and Engineering for Youth

 

Overview

Targeting high school girls and minorities traditionally underrepresented in science and engineering, SESEY places students in research groups from Oregon State University's departments of chemical engineering or bioengineering. Each pupil works with a faculty member and college student mentors on such projects as plastics recycling, biomedical polymers, materials processing, biomedical technology and waste remediation. The program also includes a trip to the Hatfield Marine Science Center, computer instruction and evening recreational programs.
