Mount Union College Will Host Junior Scholars Program on Campus

April 22, 2010

Mount Union College will host the final session of its 2006-2007 Junior Scholars Program on campus Tuesday, March 27.

This is the 21st year for the Mount Union College Junior Scholars Program, where approximately 100 gifted and talented high school juniors and seniors and their high school coordinators are invited to campus four times throughout the academic year; twice in the fall and twice in the spring.

The 10 high schools participating in this year's Junior Scholars Program include Alliance, East Canton, Louisville, Malvern, Marlington, Minerva, Sebring McKinley, St. Thomas Aquinas, Waterloo and West Branch.

The four Junior Scholars presentations by Mount Union College faculty are 60 minutes in length. The two presentations to be held during the final session are 'Something in the Water' led by Dr. Lin Wu, associate professor of biology and 'Wavelets: The Real 'New Math'' led by Dr. Gerald Wuchter, associate professor of mathematics.

The goals of the program are to present information and ideas normally not included in the high school curriculum, to give high school students an opportunity to meet and interact with other students of similar ability, to expose students to the academic character and intellectual challenge offered on a college campus and to allow students an opportunity for an in depth exploration of a particular interest area.
