Building a Pipeline of K-12 Students Motivated
& Prepared for Success in Studying Engineering and Applied Sciences


Proposals are being planned to build a pipeline of K-12 students motivated and prepared for success in studying engineering and applied sciences, particularly from traditionally underrepresented student populations of ethnic minorities and females. The public schools in western Michigan serve a diverse student population. Our goal is to target the groups that are below the "cream of the crop" which are currently being served by several programs offered by the Kalamazoo public schools, and motivate these B and C students to bring them up to A’s and B’s by the time they enter high school so they can be prepared to take advanced courses in mathematics and sciences and be successful in college.
