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, laboratory experiments designed 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 concepts. 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 1:00 pm.

The HEP Outreach Program is made possible with support from:
