Gliders, circuits, siphons: Upward Bound students experience engineering at Cornell
By Syl Kacapyr

Building wooden gliders, engineering electrical circuits and designing a siphon were among the activities local high school students participated in on Nov. 18 as part of Engineering Exploration Day at Cornell.

Thirty students from Tompkins and neighboring counties were on campus as members of the Upward Bound program, a U.S. Department of Education initiative aimed at introducing higher education to K-12 students who may not have considered pursuing a college degree. The Upward Bound program at Cornell is facilitated by the Einhorn Center.
