Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) September 3, 2010
Lead-America.org, a leader in high school summer programs, conducted summer engineering programs for sophomores, juniors and seniors with visits to Stanford, MIT and Olin College of Engineering. Each of these programs gives high school seniors and others the preview they need to prepare for college.
The high school summer programs, focusing on engineering and robotics, featured speakers such as Dr. Cherry A. Murray, Dean of Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. In 2002, Discover Magazine named her one of the “50 Most Important Women in Science.”
Students attending these summer engineering programs for sophomores through seniors, participated in activities such as analysis of the Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco, a visit to the NASA Ames Exploration Center, a Circuit Design workshop and a visit to the campus of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
“The summer engineering programs for sophomores, juniors and seniors help high school students who are preparing for college. All of our high school summer programs show students what attending college and living on campus is like so that they can be better prepared prior to leaving home for their first semester,” said Dr. Jan Sikorsky, LeadAmerica’s Director of Academics.
The LeadAmerica summer engineering programs for sophomores, juniors and seniors are tailored for academically motivated high school students who are preparing for college and beyond. All of the high school summer programs are held at top universities, feature nationally recognized speakers and offer students a unique hands on experience.
