Nuclear, Materials, Space Sciences (NuMaSS) Summer Program


Tuesday, May 30, 2017 --- Friday, June 30, 2017


The Morehouse NuMaSS Summer Program is a powerful, intense, four-week experience for rising 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders who have a desire and/or aptitude to pursue an undergraduate degree in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). Rising 12th graders must be returning students only.  This science program caters to high school students who desire an opportunity to engage in college courses and college laboratories, thus strengthening and reinforcing their fundamental science and mathematics skills.  This program also gives students a greater understanding of fundamental skills necessary to successfully transition from high school to college. Although open to all students from any geographical area, each participant must be living in the Atlanta Metropolitan area for the duration of the program.
