SCIENCE QUEST, FALL 2011

UMASS AMHERST CAMPUS
For high school students interested in science, Science
Quest is a great opportunity to visit the UMass campus,
engage in hands-on science activities and demonstrations,
and see presentations by UMass faculty members. Students
can discover how nanoscale devices and materials are made,
or how a crumpled piece of paper can help explain
principles of energy and matter. Or, they may choose a
mini-course on the political as well as technological
aspects of modern energy sources such as biofuels, solar
energy and fuel cells. Also a panel of UMass undergraduate
science students will discuss what it is like to be a
science major at UMass, and a group of students will
discuss their brand new iCons program.
The event is FREE. Each attendee must register
