How did you spend your summer vacation? We’ll talk next to three students from the Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) Schools who were selected to participate in the 2009 Research Science Institute (RSI) Program held from June through August at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Husain Mogri, from Bahrain American School, Derrick Lewis, from Ramstein High School and Shannon Grammel, from Heidelberg American High School will join us to discuss their experiences working under the mentorship of eminent scientists and researchers. Sponsored by the Center for Excellence in Education, RSI is a six-week residential summer program where students attend college-level classes taught by distinguished professors; work with scientists, mathematicians, and engineers; and complete hands-on research with professionals at corporations, universities and research organizations. Twenty-one previous DoDEA students have participated in the RSI program. Student selectees have demonstrated superior achievement in math, the sciences, and verbal arts and show potential to become leaders in science. This program provides an opportunity for academically talented high school to become leaders in science, engineering, technology and mathematics.
