Regional Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM) Service-Learning

Funding Description

The Regional STEM Service-Learning Initiative will promote STEM-based, service-learning opportunities for students, especially female and underrepresented minorities, to increase student interest in pursuing STEM related careers and postsecondary study. STEM content and concepts are introduced in a nontraditional setting, thereby increasing the relevance to the experience of the student. This instructional methodology has been shown to increase academic engagement significantly. A key focus of the Initiative is to better engage participants in the civic lives of their community.
