This handbook provides high school students with the information needed to form and maintain high school chapters of the American Indian Science and Engineering Society (AISES). AISES is a private non-profit organization founded in 1977 to increase the number of American Indian scientists and engineers in the nation and to develop technologically informed leaders within the Indian community. AISES pre-college student programs provide learning experiences that promote academic and cultural enrichment, and provide students with opportunities for interaction with American Indian role models in science, engineering, and mathematics related professions. Programs also increase career awareness and heighten the sense of American Indian identity. The advantages and opportunities available through AISES high school student chapters are listed. The steps in forming a chapter, and ways to recruit students and find an advisor are outlined. Information is also provided on AISES science clubs, fund raising activities, and the AISES code of ethics. (SV)
