On Friday, July 30, 2021, the twenty-three high school researchers who participated in this summer’s research experience for high school students will come to an end with this showcase and celebration. Presenters and their mentors participated in 7 weeks of study and research with the Center for Power Optimization and Electro-thermal Systems (POETS) Young Scholars program, the Sparking High Schooler’s Excitement for Research in Engineering and Science (SpHERES) program, and the Grainger Engineering Young Scholars (GEnYuS) program.

This symposium will feature the remote research projects from 12 different research groups. The high school students were mentored by faculty and students at the University of Illinois, and high school educators provided an added layer of mentoring during this expanded virtual experience.
