Outreach

Faculty members in the EFI run various outreach programs throughout the year.

Professors David Miller and Dave Schmitz run the Fermi Summer Interns Program in Science each year for students entering 7th grade.  Interns spend a week on-campus with lectures on various aspects of physics and time in a lab learning how to build and program various electronics and robots.

Professor Yau Wah teaches a physics class through the university's Collegiate Scholars Program, which encourages high achieving and underrepresented Chicago Public Schools students to apply to and succeed at highly selective colleges and universities.
