Research Experience for Secondary Students (RESSt)

FCE's Research Experience for Secondary Students (RESSt) program began in 2003. Students work with FCE scientists 5 - 20 hours per week. Additionally, many students in the program:

  • Present their work in their science classes
  • Travel to elementary and middle schools to give presentations
  • Present posters at our annual ASM meetings
  • Compete in local, state and international science fairs
