Participants

The ARC/ORNL 2012 High School Summer Math-Science-Technology Institute participants include 14 high school teachers and 36 high school students. These 50 participants are from 13 states within the Appalachian region. Four Resident Teachers chaperone the participants. The 2012 participants are distributed into 10 research teams: four of the research teams are comprised of teachers, and six teams are comprised of students. Team members generally do not know each other initially, but friendships become established over the two-week research experience.
