On Wednesday, February 10th, 2010, NSMAA and NSM College together welcomed 12 students from Stephen F. Austin High School Math and Science Club to visit the University of Houston campus. Rhonda Thompson, the NSM Assistant Dean for Strategic Planning, dedicated her time to make this visit successful. She showed SFA students the newest NSM Science Building and the Center for Nuclear Receptors and Cell Signaling. The students were exposed to many state of the art technologies and current researches at UH. Students also got to meet several prestigious UH professors including the Director of NSM Advising Center. This tour is an effort to introduce local high school math and science students to UH facilities and academic programs. We will hope to continue this program as well as the collaboration with the NSM college to recruit potential students.
