"Paper chemistry is an amazing process," says John Heitman, a professor of chemistry at North Carolina State University. "People use paper all the time, but they don't think about where it comes from and what it's made of." Likewise for students of chemistry, the pulp and paper industry is relatively unknown. So, departments of pulp and paper technology actively recruit high school students to their programs-many of which are industry supported and provide attractive scholarships.
