Education, Awareness, and Actions (EAA) workshops are part of the academic enrichment program initiated by Professor Elsaidi, which aims to help young people who show promise in the scientific fields by providing them with more opportunities to learn about and participate in those fields. This program provides students in the Chicago metropolitan area with numerous opportunities to engage in Science, including summer research, training, lectures, workshops, and outreach activities. The EAA workshop series aims to educate students about how science impact society while also raising awareness about climate change and the need for sustainability for future generations.

The event is sponsored by Elsaidi’s group at IIT and SE-MAT Smartly Engineered Materials LLC
