Additional Information

The general format for the ASPIRE Researcher Meet & Greets includes:

  • An informal 15 to 20-minute slide presentation for ASPIRE students to share their journey from pre-college schooling to college, and unique exciting points about their ASPIRE research in the context of pre-college STEM concepts using analogies that high school students (ages 14-18) can relate to. 
  • The slide presentation is followed by a 30 to 35-minute open-ended Q&A session to learn more about the presenters, their experiences and advice on pursuing STEM in higher education, discuss post-secondary engineering career options, etc. 
  • Teachers may have students think about questions beforehand, but usually, the discussion evolves organically based on the high schoolers’ questions.

Teachers should show the short ASPIRE video beforehand as an introduction so their students have an idea about the center’s research focus, etc.
