Argonne's High School Summer Internship

This is a report from last summer's Argonne high school summer internship program for high school students around the Chicago area. There are some very bright students here. One can only wish that every students with some interest in science is given such opportunity to participate in programs like this. I like the fact that this is almost like a "mystery" game, and that these students not only have to fulfill the mission (i.e. to identify the sample), but also learn at least one particular characterization tool. Did they know that the skill of knowing such tools can, in fact, be a valuable trait when they go out into the work force and seek jobs? I hope someone impressed that upon them during the program.

Well done!
