THE THREE-TIERED PROGRAM INCLUDES:
Tours of the SPRI Laboratories by fifth graders.
School visits by SPRI staff scientists while students are
in sixth, seventh and eighth grades, including science
fairs, classroom or assembly lectures and support for
science-related projects such as robotics competitions.
Invitations for high school students to join the SPRI
Science Club. Members will have an opportunity to meet
physicians and scientists, attend an orthopaedics lecture
series and participate in research projects. They will also
receive a SPRI Science Club T-shirt as a member gift.
Since 2011, the EPOC program has provided
lab tours for fifth through twelfth grade Eagle
County School District and Vail Mountain School
students, mentored middle school science fairs,
lectured at school assemblies and provided two
summer high school student internships.
According to Coen A. Wijdicks, Ph.D., director
of the Department of BioMedical Engineering,
“Our young scientists hold the key to the future.
These experiences allow students to exercise
the resources they learn in their science classes
and apply scientific methods and techniques to
various topics and experiments. It is very reward-
ing mentoring the students and working with
them on ways to better understand the dynamics
behind producing an authentic experiment.”
Through the Steadman
Philippon Research
Institute's program, local
students are exposed to
technology, mathematics,
engineering and science.
