The High School Honors Institutecomposite HSHI pics

“The High School Honors Institute (HSHI) is a fun and intensive four-day campus residential program that introduces the creative nature of engineering to students with strong academic records in math and science who are interested in cultivating their creativity to solve problems. High school juniors and seniors have an opportunity to experience college life as an engineering student by attending sessions of two engineering majors, participating in curricular and extra-curricular activities, and exploring career opportunities.” …. from HSHI Website

The WII Lab hosted multiple HSHI sessions in 2007, 2008, and 2010 where the high school students gained an understanding of low-fidelity prototyping techniques. See more pictures of HSHI sessions.
