TEACHERS AND HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS PROGRAM

Project Details

Description

The NCRR Initiative is designed to strengthen the quality of pre-college
science education available to underrepresented minority students. In
an effort to increase significantly the pool of minorities in the
sciences, Rutgers-Newark will implement a program comprised of summer
research opportunities and long-range partnerships between high schools
and the university research community. Specifically, the NCRR Initiative will: 1) expose minority high school
students to research science by providing hands-on research experiences
under the guidance of science faculty, thus stimulating their interest
and encouraging decisions towards careers in the health sciences; 2)
introduce teachers to advancements in the field of science by providing
them the opportunity to train in research-active laboratories under the
supervision of a faculty mentor; 3) allow participation of the university
research faculty in the advisement and monitoring of students pre-college
education, and in the teachers' development of more stimulating science
curricula.
