Penn student volunteers and their middle-school partners will launch rockets and power boats as part of a week-long summer course designed to get young people excited about science and technology.
InnoWorks is an innovative science and engineering initiative, â€śBy Students, For Students,â€ť designed and implemented by college volunteers for middle-school students from disadvantaged backgrounds. Forty middle-school students spend the week on science projects not typically available in their schools. Penn student volunteers assist with experiments incorporating the five senses.
