Since 2008, the College of Engineering at Georgia Tech has offered a 3-week residential Summer Engineering Institute (SEI) which focuses on underrepresented minority rising 11th and 12th graders from across the nation.
The goal of GT-SEI is to provide students with a real world engineering experience that prepares them for the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow.

He said he was thinking of writing a book (at which there was silent astonishment), and that he and his friends wanted to collect information about hobbits living outside the Shire, especially in the eastern lands.
