Guide Right Students Intern at Fermi Lab

The MWAC Guide Right Program serves four West Suburban Chicago area high schools. A goal of the program is to introduce the students to college and professional opportunities.  The picture shown was taken at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, in Batavia, Illinois, where high-energy physics experiments are conducted.  The Fermi summer intern program is designed to awaken high school students interest in science careers.  The Guide Right Program also takes students on local college and university tours and connects the students to scholarship opportunities.  Approximately 150 young men are involved with the Guide Right program.
