On Saturday, February 23, 2019, the Viterbi School of Engineering and USC PressFriends Club will host the REACH Symposium on the Health Sciences Campus for elementary school students, and we need your help!

We are looking for Viterbi doctoral students interested in presenting their research. Each speaker will present the same PowerPoint presentation four times. The presentations are for 4th-6th graders, and should be 10-15 minutes long, followed by 15 minutes of Q&A. Students will take notes during the presentation and will write an article on the subject of their choice. The completed articles will then be published in USC Kids News.

If you are interested in presenting, please complete the form below as soon as possible but no later than January 18, 2019.

Your submission will be reviewed and you will be contacted on January 22, 2019 regarding the status.

If you are selected, you will be required to attend a speaker luncheon meeting on February 1, 2019.

Questions may be directed to Jennifer Gerson, Director, Doctoral Programs, at
