The special school is being held at the U.S. Department of Energy's Oak Ridge Lab (ORNL) and is being administered by the Oak Ridge Institute from Science and Education (ORISE).

The summer program will focus on hands-on education and the application of math and science principles in the 21st century. Students and teachers will participate in field and lab experiments under the guidance of mentoring scientists.

ORNL is one of the largest U. S. Department of Energy research facilities. ORNL pioneers the development of new energy resources, and addresses the important national and global environmental issues.

ARC sponsors the summer programs for selected students from 13 states. Twenty-eight high school students and nineteen teachers have been selected, with a more than respectable representation from Calhoun County. Students are chosen for their academic and leadership potential. Teachers are selected as a reward for their dedication to teaching.

The group will also have outside experiences at the American Museum of Science and Energy, Mayfield Dairy, the Tennessee Aquarium and Dollywood Amusement Park.

During the two-week period, you may check-up on the group by visiting the ORISE web site below.
