    in addressing the needs of pre-college students from

    2. Expand background knowledge in science, mathematics
                 and engineering
    3. Gain innovative curriculum to implement in the classroom
    4. Build nationwide networks of teachers and scientists
                 dedicated to minority education

    In addition to interactive sessions lead by SACNAS,
    activities include in-depth workshops presented by
    partner organizations, keynote speaker and Nobel laureate
    addresses, off-site visit to a local informal education
    site, catered meals, exhibits and social events. Partner
