2013 Summer Outreach Program
July 8 - July 12, 2013
Samuel Kersten Physics Teaching Center
5720 S Ellis Avenue

Each year approximately 20 7th grade students from several schools near Hyde Park are selected by their teachers to participate in the Enrico Fermi Summer Internship at the University of Chicago. The internship includes lectures led by university professors, labs to give students an opportunity to apply concepts learned in lectures, and a field trip to a science center or museum. Students will learn about science, computers, and electronics in a fun way, and will build electronic games and devise their own experiments to test some scientific theories. Ideal candidates have demonstrated potential and interest in science and show an eagerness to learn outside of their typical class environment. Interns are expected to arrive promptly to the Kersten Physics Teaching Center daily in order for lectures to begin at 9:30 am; the daily program ends at 3:30 pm. The afternoon program includes science activities around campus and at Chicago museums.
