Lecture #3 at Rockefeller University: HCS student, Elijah Akindamidele, gives her PowerPoint presentation on Asymmetrical Surface Modification.
Harlem Children Society (HCS: www.hcs2k.org) a Not-for-profit organization founded on June 5, 2000, by Dr. Sat Bhattacharya, selects promising students from communities ridden by poverty and adverse situations, engaging and training them in one-on-one mentoring and hands-on research in STEM and allied sciences.
The US HCS Class of 2010 consists of 300 young scholars from over 200 schools from diverse ethnicities (40% African American, 26% Hispanic, 16% Native American, 14% Asian, and 4% Caucasian). They are mentored by over 1500 mentors -- all leading scientists, engineers, doctors and other professionals from over 250 institutions.
All HCS students graduating high school students were admitted to college/university, with 20% attending Ivy League schools.
"HCS Global Science Parades and Science Street Fairs & Festivals", organized in the Fall each year are the jewels in the crown of the HCS program, culminating in a series of simultaneous worldwide, global webcasted events, where students present their hands-on research projects. The event celebrates the unifying impact of academic inquiry and the human spirit across continental and cultural divides.
