The Freshman Scholar Institute program hosted 77 incoming students for a summer 7-week academic program.  This year's program included the addition of the Foundations in Engineering course taught by Profs. Andrew Houck and Claire Gmachl.  The course featured laboratory-based work with the goal of reducing attrition among students who have expressed an interest in engineering fields.  Students constructed "rockets" to provide a familiarity with physics and math as well as hands-on design experience with engineering.  Click here to read the full story.
