Abstract

An extension of the "Future Scientist and Engineers Club" initiative which began at Doherty High School, was the effort to establish a similar club at South High School. Again, college students from WPI interacted with selected high school students to spark interest in possible careers in science and engineering. We conclude that the club is a very effective way to not only encourage students to pursue technical careers in general, but also to assist students overcome specific obstacles they face applying to college.
