Programs with High Schools

Engineering Career Day (TBA)
High school students are introduced to the various engineering disciplines and career options during an one-day event, which includes short presentations as well as Q&A sessions with faculty and undergraduate students.

National/International Chemistry Olympiad – Local Qualifying Exams
We have coordinated the local and national level qualifying exams for High School students in a 3-County region in Akron, OH, supported by the local section of ACS from 2008 to 2015. This program promotes the participation of gifted students in the National Chemistry Olympiad (USNCO) and in the International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO), and provides an opportunity for motivated students (including those in disadvantaged school districts) to participate in various science and engineering projects at the University.
