The precollege program in the FREEDM research center has completed its first year with 31 participants. The precollege outreach effort at the three ERC university partners is targeted at middle and high school teachers and students. The program consist of three major thrusts: (1) a research experience for teachers, (2) a Young Scholars program for high school students, and (3) summer camps for middle school girls and minorities. Along with faculty, graduate and undergraduate students act as mentors to both the teachers and precollege students. Assessment data are being collected to gauge the efficacy of the precollege program.
