SESEY 2014

Posted July 24th, 2014 by Emily Nicholson

The Precollege Programs’ Summer Experience in Science and Engineering for Youth (SESEY) is a program primarily for high school girls and ethnic minorities traditionally underrepresented in science and engineering. Students are paired with a faculty mentor in engineering to conduct a mini-research project.

2014, its 17th year at Oregon State University, SESEY had around 60 participants as well as college-aged counselors and mentors. Skip Rochefort, an associate professor in chemical engineering and executive director of Precollege Programs said that the goal of the camp is more t inspire studetns to pursue STEM careers, especially engienering, than it is to recruit students to OSU.
