Polymer Science Association (PSA)

Polymer Science Association

The Polymer Science Association (PSA) is an undergraduate service association devoted to supporting polymer science and polymer science and engineering undergraduates in their academic endeavors. It also serves as an outreach program to science-minded high school students in Mississippi and helps raise awareness for polymer science and engineering and the USM School of Polymer Science and Engineering in our community. The PSA's activities involve recruiting, conducting science experiments and demonstrations, providing tours, and organizing school events.  The PSA is advised by Dr. Heather Broadhead. The club invites experts to lecture on various topics of interest to the group, including resume and portfolio building, career opportunities in industry and academia, and summer internships.
