High School Mentorship Program

MENTORSHIP2At CINS, we believe the future of nanotechnology lies in the hands and minds of our youth, and we are dedicated to the education of young people. Now is the time to train Arkansas youth for the nanotechnology careers of tomorrow.

CINS offers mentorship opportunities to area high school students, giving them the chance to gain lab experience and prepare science fair projects that often compete well at the state and national levels.

Summer Mentorship Opportunities

At CINS, high school students can get hands-on research experience in preparation for science fairs, college, and their professional careers. Our staff and student researchers work one-on-one with area high schoolers enrolled in our Mentorship Program, giving them a greater understanding of research techniques and nanotechnology.

Beginning in 2014, summer mentorship opportunities will become a competitive process. Please check back with us for more details.

High School Research Program

CINS researchers also take part in the College of Engineering and Information Technology’s High School Research Program. This program provides a three-week intensive learning environment for students interested in the STEM disciplines. Students are provided campus housing and meals, and are given a slew of social activities to balance the research program. Please visit the EIT site for more information on the High School Research Program.
