We encourage schools to register for this event and join us for this one-of-a-kind program. We have a limit to the number of students that can attend and attendance is based on a first come first serve basis. Please see the program flyer for further information
This FREE high school outreach program is presented to expose students to the profession of chemical engineering and engineering in general, and to give students the opportunity to interact with professional engineers. Students will come away from the program with an understanding of what engineers in general and chemical engineers in particular do, how they touch our lives, and how to pursue a career in engineering.
