On Saturday, October 6, 2012, the Westinghouse Science Honors Institute (WSHI) will begin the 56th series of Saturday science lectures. WSHI is a free program for high school juniors from Western Pennsylvania and the surrounding communities who demonstrate a strong interest in science and engineering and who are of high scholastic standing. WSHI consists of 10 Saturday-morning lectures, from October through February, on selected topics in science and engineering.
Students attend WSHI to gain insight into careers in engineering and science. They network with professionals in the "real world," and interact with students from different schools who also have the same abilities and interests. Accepted students will also have the opportunity to take an optional trip to tour Penn State University's Breazeale nuclear reactor, located at University Park, PA.
Approximately 400 juniors are accepted into the program. Held annually, nearly 14,600 students have attended WSHI, and many have gone on to successful careers in science and engineering.
The 2012-2013 Westinghouse Science Honors Institute is sponsored solely by Westinghouse Electric Company.
