Well, this is embarrassing. There should be an image here. Great picture, too!

SUCCESS is a pilot study to understand,

  • the best ways to engage underrepresented students in STEM and increase their science identity,
  • the best ways to increase students hope and confidence in STEM,
  • what are some best practices to provide motivation and scaffolding for underrepresented students who want to pursue a STEM major in college?

We believe that students learn from:

  • guided discovery
  • real-life, relevant curriculum modules
  • working with mentors at various stages in their academic and career trajectories
  • input, hearing, reading and interacting with various media in contexts such as: hands-on experiences, pictures, video, descriptions, and other subject-matter content,
  • frequent and varied opportunities to design, interpret and demonstrate understanding of the material presented.
