Abstract: 

Oregon State University has an active program dedicated to increasing the number of under-represented students in STEM: http://lsamp.oregonstate.edu/

At the end of summer, Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) Summer Bridge students spend a day visiting the science departments on campus.  Groups of about 20 students visit our department to find out what university physics is like.  This year Ethan Minot is leading a 50-minute program comprised of mini lectures, computer visualizations and small group activities that deal with electromagnetism.
