Rising high school students grades 10 through 12 will have the opportunity to participate in The BEST Experience (Be an Engineering STudent), a new week-long residential program sponsored by The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) College of Engineering. "The idea behind the BEST Experience is to put engineering tools and experiments into the hands of high-school students such that they can learn what engineering at a university is like. We want them to see for themselves that majoring in engineering is very rewarding, challenging, and fun," said Dr. Jennifer English, associate dean and professor (ECE) of the UAH College of Engineering. The BEST Experience will give area students an idea of what it's like to be an engineer for a week, July 20-25 on the UAH campus. The deadline to register for the program is Thursday, May 15. Scholarships for up to 75 percent of the program fee are available for qualified families with financial need.
