ASPIRE (A Student-led Program in Research and Education )
ASPIRE (A Student-­‐led Program in Research and Education) provides 20-­‐25 high school students with hands-­‐on lab experiences in polymer science ranging in focus from synthesis to mechanical testing through a series of half-­‐day activities over five consecutive Saturdays each winter. ASPIRE gives high school students a unique opportunity to gain experience in chemistry, physics and engineering of polymers, areas of study rarely taught in traditional high school science classes.
