SHARP – Summer High School Apprenticeship Research Program

The Nanoscale Science and Engineering (NSE) Graduate Group at the University of California, Berkeley enthusiastically continues our  summer high-school apprenticeship research program (SHARP). In SHARP, high school students  have the opportunity to do hands-on scientific investigations in a dynamic research environment at UC Berkeley. The students will work with graduate student researchers in NSE faculty laboratories, gaining first-hand experience in how science and engineering research is conducted.

The NSE faculty is a multidisciplinary group with research expertise over a very broad scope of disciplines, including electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, biology, chemistry, materials science, and computation.  Our research focuses on information, biomedical, and manufacturing technologies that will transform science and our economy in the next decades.  The research encompasses studies of nanostructure building blocks and new ways to seamlessly integrate those building blocks into new materials, devices and systems. By ‘mixing  and matching’ components having different electronic, magnetic, optical, and structural properties, our ultimate goal is to create ‘designer materials’ and designer systems that will have capabilities far exceeding those found in nature.

Deadline: March 1, 2013
