Hofstra's Summer Science Research Program is entering its sixth season in 2007 and has averaged two Intel semifinalists since its inception. Directed by Dr. Wachter, an associate professor of chemistry, the selective program offers high school students opportunities in science research. Students are selected for the program on the basis of their high school science experience, a personal interview and, above all, the high school teacher's recommendation. Information about the program can be found on Hofstra's website at www.hofstra.edu/ssrp.
