Tulane Science Scholars Program
The Tulane Science Scholars Program (TSSP) gives high school students the opportunity to take college-credit courses taught by Tulane faculty in the School of Science and Engineering before high school graduation. The TSSP is a selective program for rising 10th through 12th grade students who have exceptional talent in the sciences, engineering, and mathematics. A variety of courses in science and engineering are offered each summer and have a workload similar to that of a regular undergraduate course. During the course of a two-week session, students will also attend lunch-n-learns with invited speakers as well as tour many of our science and engineering research labs including the Tulane MakerSpace.
Who: Rising 10th-12th grade students
Dates: Session 1: July 9th – July 20th, 2018
Session 2: July 23rd – August 3rd, 2018

High School STEM Days – Starting fall 2018!
High school classes can visit campus with a day tailored toward students interested in pursuing a degree in a STEM field. Students will tour campus, visit research laboratories, meet faculty, and speak with a panel of Tulane SSE undergraduate students. Check back for more details soon!
American Institute of Chemical Engineering Outreach Program
Each year, the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE) in partnership with Tulane School of Science and Engineering hosts an annual FREE outreach program for both high and middle school students. The purpose is to expose students to the profession of chemical engineering and engineering in general, and to give students the opportunity to interact with professional engineers. Students will come away from the program with an understanding of what engineers in general and chemical engineers in particular do, how they touch our lives, and how to pursue a career in engineering. The next event is scheduled for spring 2019, date TBD.
