High School Research in Molecular Engineering (HiRe-ME)@Model.HeadlineSize>
NEW! This opportunity blends the best of YNS "Camp" and "High School Researcher" experience.
- Past YNS campers who want to try something new
- High schoolers who want to earn money while gaining achievements for their college applications
- Young people who love hands-on science
The goal of this camp is to give high school students the opportunity to learn about the role molecular engineering plays in our modern lives using authentic, hand-on activities. Students will learn about molecules and macromolecules first hand as they explore techniques for materials processing. Join us in the lab to dissolve polymers, cast thin films, and use a scanning electron microscope to get a closer look at porous films.
LOCATION: University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
NOTE: This is not your normal camp! Students will receive stipends and travel funds for participating. Participants will be competitively selected for this camp based on their answers to application questions and quality of their resumes.
