After a tremendously successful first year, the Stewart School of Industrial & Systems Engineering (ISyE) will be hosting the second annual Mission Possible STEM Summer Enrichment Program designed to introduce rising 10th and 12th grade high school students to the fascinating world of industrial engineering.  This year, to accommodate a larger number of students, the program will be offered in two separate week-long summer sessions from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day.  Students will have the opportunity to attend either the June 24-28 session, or the July 15-19 session.

“After last year’s exciting response to the program, we are looking forward to offering an additional weeklong session, accommodating a larger number of students than we were able to accept last year.” said Valarie DuRant-Modeste, academic advising manager in ISyE and program director for Mission Possible. “We look forward to hosting another exceptional and diverse group of students eager to learn about industrial engineering.”

Mission Possible is open to students who excel in math and science, with a focus on recruiting under-represented minority students.  Last year, twenty-four high school students, from schools across the country, participated in the weeklong program where they interacted with industry representatives from companies such as Coca-Cola, Proctor & Gamble, and Caterpillar Inc., and gained insight from ISyE students, faculty, and academic advisors.

Students can apply through the Georgia Tech Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing (CEISMC) website beginning February 2013. For more information about the program or to learn about scholarship opportunities available for students, contact Valarie DuRant Modeste, academic advising manager and undergraduate recruiter in ISyE, at vrd@isye.gatech.edu or 404.894.8405.
