High School Students Revel in Research, Take Away Lifelong STEM Lessons

Ten high school students embrace the unique opportunity to perform nanotechnology research alongside esteemed UC faculty and students.

When it comes to learning, are you a listener, an observer, or a doer?

There are different teaching methods in which a student can engage that will allow them to retain information at various rates. Studies have shown that a higher retention of learning is achieved when participatory teaching methods are implemented. In fact, the retention rate is 75% for students who learn and practice by “doing.”

Taking this one step further, research also illustrates that such methods are crucial to a student’s future as “hands-on learning can also significantly contribute to students gaining the 21st century skills they’ll need as they develop into the next generation of business owners, innovators, managers, and employees.”

The UC College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) acknowledges and aligns with this evidence, offering ten high school students (grades 9-12) the rare opportunity to perform collegiate research as a part of the Summer Institute program. The research portion of the Summer Institute program began in 2010 as part of a grant from the National Science Foundation to introduce nanotechnology into the undergraduate curriculum at UC.
