Summer DASH Program
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
