Workshops for Upward Bound & Talent Search Tutorials

We develop and run outreach activities with low-income and at-risk high school students. We want to help the students learn about the opportunities available in college. We ran the first session on 23 March 2013 with two engineering groups presenting topics (involving high speed cameras and magnets!) from their undergraduate research, and the students and organization gave fantastic feedback and wanted to continue. Now, we need people willing to help develop and present (mostly using interactive activities)!

Workshops under construction:
– Research demonstrations (Chris Prohoda, cprohoda@vt.edu)
– Exciting Economics (Natalie Cauley, ncauley@vt.edu; Jon Krone, jkrone@vt.edu)
– A sentence tells a story (Chris Prohoda, cprohoda@vt.edu)
– Pumping mechanisms (John Cace, jcace@vt.edu)

Need:
-People who can develop demonstrations/workshops

-Chris Prohoda, cprohoda@vt.edu (graduating May 2013)
-Chantie Nguyen, clyn0613@vt.edu (graduating May 2013)
