High Schoolers Invited to Explore STEM Careers During ETSU BLUE Weekend

JOHNSON CITY – High school students interested in pursuing degrees in STEM—Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics—are invited to attend East Tennessee State University’s BLUE Weekend on March 31 and April 1. BLUE stands for Bucs Live University Experience, a college immersion weekend that introduces students to the many degree programs offered at ETSU while providing them an opportunity to experience the ETSU campus.

During the weekend, students will be paired with near-peer mentors who are current STEM majors. Program participants will spend time with their mentors, who will serve as campus guides during many of the student activities that weekend. Visits to the ETSU planetarium and the Center for Physical Activity are among the scheduled events.

Students will be able to learn more about the professors, degree programs and facilities that promote STEM degrees and careers while discovering what it means to be actively engaged in campus life. All meals and activities will be provided free of charge.

To be eligible for BLUE Weekend, students must have a minimum 2.5 cumulative grade-point average and have a strong interest in a STEM career. They must be nominated by a high school administrator or instructor. Preference will be given to high school juniors and seniors and to first-generation and underrepresented student populations.

Activities will take place from 5 to 11 p.m. on March 31 and 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on April 1. The deadline to submit nominations and students’ application forms is March 24.

In addition to experiments, we will be doing demonstrations of some of the cool things we have at UT. We will be showing off MABEline (our MABE department's really realistic synthetic cadaver), a flow loop that we have in the Nuclear Engineering department, a Scanning Electron Microscope, and more.
