Franklin Institute Laureates
The Pennoni Honors College and the Franklin Institute have partnered to provide a unique opportunity for Drexel Honors students to spend a day with some of the most accomplished scientists and business leaders of our time. At the annual Franklin Institute Awards program on April 22, 2014, selected students will serve as liaisons to the nine Franklin Laureates, while approximately 40 additional Honors students will have the opportunity to attend the educational programming that day:
- Laureates' Laboratory (10-11:45 am): Interactive Demonstrations that explain the Laureates' science will be presented to museum visitors
- Meet the Scientists (1:15-3:30 pm): After a brief opening, the Meet the Scientists' program is a Q&A session between the Laureates and approximately 260 invited school students from regional high schools and select undergraduate students from local universities.
All participating Drexel students will be invited to a reception with the Franklin Laureates following the two events. If you are interested in participating in this exciting and prestigious program, please RSVP by filling out a brief online survey no later than March 31, 2014. Please contact the Office of Undergraduate Research with any questions!
