Members of the guidance department at North High School were concerned about the small number of students entering technical colleges. Many more seemed more interested in such careers than successfully applied. It was proposed that WPI students, who have successfully been through the college application process, coach sophomores on how to positions and present themselves. In the course of bureacratic review and modifications, the proposed interaction program evolved into an extracurricular "Future Scientists and Engineers" club. A survey was carried out to identify sophomores who should be invited to join. However, delays made it impossible for us to execute the plan and three other WPI students were recruited to do this. later.
