“Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.” ~Chinese Proverb
It is never to early to begin learning skills that are useful throughout your personal and professional life.
Here are two opportunities for high school students to learn more about math and science (this month) and to spend their summer with other ‘cherubs,’ learning teamwork while exploring passions. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Northwestern University and the Society of Women Engineers Presented ” The 39th Annual Career Day for Girls. Engineering: Explore, Create, Transform. This program is designed for female junior high and high school students who have an interest in science and mathematics. The program will contain educational and career information about opportunities in engineering and applied science. Our speakers are women who have engineering degrees and current female engineering students.
Note: I have a table for ten young women reserved and paid for, with a few spaces still available. I would welcome the opportunity to host interested junior high and high school girls.
Northwestern University’s National High School Institute, established in 1931, is the nation’s oldest and largest university-based summer program for outstanding high school students. Approximately 850 of the United States’ best students will enroll in the Institute’s 6 Divisions: Debate, Speech, Journalism, Music, Film & Video Production, and Theatre Arts. Students in the Institute are affectionately called “Cherubs,” a tradition that began in the 1930s with the founder of the Institute, Dean Ralph Dennis.
NHSI’s goal, as stated by Dean Dennis and as followed today is, “to bring together gifted young people and superior teachers in an atmosphere of affection, knowledge, and trust.” In each of the 6 divisions, students gain practical college-level experience in their chosen field; interact closely with outstanding faculty; tackle new social and intellectual challenges; and experience campus life with other exceptional high school students. NHSI students leave the Institute better able to make decisions about their future and many go on to study at the finest colleges and universities.
