Outreach programs are an essential part of the university system. Here at FIU, we consider Outreach as a method of reaching out to the younger generation and motivating them to take up sciences as a career.
Through the ASSIST program, the MEMS and Bio-systems group hosts High school students and faculty every summer as REUs and RETs. These participants are provided with an opportunity to work on cutting edge technology and research projects that are going in our labs.
We have received REUS and RETs from the Coral Way High School, Miami in the past and this year also have two students and two faculties that will work with us.
