IMAPS Foundation stimulates area high schoolers' interest in science & technology

Raleigh, NC | Posted on September 15th, 2010

Local high school students will have the opportunity to learn first hand about the latest developments in the microelectronics industry, through a program sponsored by the International Microelectronics And Packaging Society (IMAPS) Microelectronics Foundation. The Foundation recently announced that students from Cary Academy of Cary, NC, will participate in the 4th annual Student/Exhibitor Interchange and Scholarship Program, scheduled during the 43rd International Symposium on Microelectronics (IMAPS 2010), a semiconductor technology conference and tradeshow to be held at the new Raleigh Convention Center on October 31 - November 4, 2010.

"As a professional society dedicated to advancing education and technical development in the microelectronics industry, IMAPS believes that it is vital to stimulate student interest in math, science and technology, especially at the high school level," explained Michael O'Donoghue, IMAPS executive director. "Our Student/Exhibitor Interchange Program at the IMAPS 2010 conference will give these students the opportunity to visit with leading semiconductor companies to learn about the latest technological developments in microelectronics technology."

Cary Academy students interested in science and technology will have the opportunity to participate in an essay contest on technology topics, and will then be able to tour the IMAPS exhibit hall. Specific exhibitors will be assigned to each student for them to learn more about that company's technology contributions to the microelectronics industry. As part of the program, the IMAPS foundation will present a scholarship check to the school.

According to O'Donoghue, 2010 marks the fourth year of the popular IMAPS scholarship program. "The Student/Exhibitor Interchange Program is an innovative way for us to reach out to high school students," he explained. "And we're also looking to expand the program to other high schools in the Triangle area that have science and technology studies as a major focus of their curriculum."

Interested high schools are invited to contact the IMAPS Foundation at to learn more about the scholarship program.

The 43rd International Symposium on Microelectronics is sponsored annually by IMAPS to showcase new developments in semiconductor packaging technology and promote the exchange of technical information critical to the present and future of microelectronics technology. More than 180 papers will be presented by researchers from corporations and universities worldwide.
