LET IT ROLL--José Morales, 17, who attends Eastridge High School; Nathalia Martinez, 17, who attends the School of the Arts; and Richard Quinoes, 17, from Puerto Rico, construct a roller coaster--one of the experiments approximately 30 high school students took part in during their week on campus with the Mathematics Engineering and Science for Hispanic Students (MESH) Program. The students stayed in Susan B. Anthony Hall and attended seminars at other colleges in the area, toured local businesses, and learned more about the University.

This is the first year the University has hosted the program, which was sponsored by the David T. Kearns Center for Leadership and Diversity in Science and Engineering, the Office of the Dean of the College, the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. Program coordinator John Barker says, "This year was a great success, and next year we hope to make everything even better, to interest the kids in engineering and show them what the University has to offer. We look forward to a continued relationship with MESH."
