The SCience and ENgineering Experience (SCENE) program is looking for ASU faculty who would like to participate as mentors for the 2021-2022 school year!

About the Program
The SCENE program can give you and your group an opportunity to provide a unique research experience to top-performing high school students. SCENE provides high school students with the opportunity to work in state-of-the art labs, answer their own original research questions, and compete in the Arizona Science & Engineering Fair in the spring. SCENE involvement can provide an excellent means of satisfying the challenging outreach requirement for NSF and NIH grants.

Time Commitment
Students are expected to work approximately 10 hours per week, with the work schedule being set by the faculty, their research team, and the student. The SCENE program begins in the fall semester and ends in the spring semester after the state fair.

Student Training  
The SCENE program hosts a meeting that teaches the high school students how to navigate in a university research laboratory and how to give engaging scientific presentations. The program also coordinates with EH&S to schedule the safety classes needed to work in the ASU laboratories.  

Minors on Campus Policy

Mentors must adhere to ASU’s Minors on Campus policy, which requires:  

1. Fingerprint check (paid by SCENE)
2. Completion of the Minors on Campus training through ASU Career Edge
