In particular, "a key goal of the program is to understand what it takes to get underrepresented students to succeed in science, technology, engineering and mathematics," AAAS Program Director Joan Abdallah explained.
Abdallah and her colleagues are offering an array of classroom, after-school, and summer activities for teachers and students from public, private, and charter schools in Washington, D.C. The program will serve up to 2000 students as well as teachers, counselors and parents from predominantly underrepresented, low-income schools in the District.
AAAS staff members are collaborating with the DC Association of Chartered Public Schools. An independent assessment of outcomes, especially to determine the effectiveness of different intervention strategies, will be completed next year by Campbell-Kibler Associates, Inc.
