The LRSM has organized a free, four week summer program for local high school students interested in materials science and engineering since 1993. Typically 24-28 students, usually juniors but occasionally well qualified sophomores, are accepted. Students are drawn from schools in the Delaware Valley within easy commuting distance of the LRSM. The program consists of lectures on materials, a computer lab, experimental labs, and field trips to both industrial and Penn facilities.
