Discovery Approach to Science enHancement

The Discovery Approach to Science enHancement (DASH) program is centered in the Chicago Urban Area and funded as part of The National Science Foundation's CRCM effort with help from the Frankel Foundation. The purpose of the Chicago CRCM Coalition -- Access 2000 -- is to increase the participation of traditionally underrepresented groups in science, engineering, and math (SEM) disciplines. Our summer DASH Program is structured to give rising high school sophomores and juniors a chance to get involved in "hands on" science and engineering projects. We also introduce computer programming and communication skills. The first two weeks of the program revolve around experiments involving Newtonian physics: velocity, acceleration, and motion. The second two weeks revolve around an engineering project: designing and manufacturing a rocket which will meet certain performance requirements.

This program was run on IIT's Campus from 1985 thru 2004. Enjoy some past years pages
