Math and Science Summer Institute for at Risk Students
  Location: KFC Courts
  Date: Monday, Aug.01

  Author: James D. Dull, College of Idaho
  Co-Author(s): Robin A. Cruz, Melissa Ferro, Monica White, Kathryn Devine
  Abstract: The College of Idaho has collaborated with Syringa Middle School in Caldwell, Idaho, to promote the study of math and science in a population at high risk for dropping out of high school. Participants include the economically disadvantaged, rurally isolated, and traditionally under-represented students. The goal of the program is to engage these students with the potential for academic success by exposure to enrichment activities in science, engineering, and mathematics. Moreover, our program encourages these students to consider the importance of math and science in high school and promotes college as both a desirable and attainable goal through the participation of college student assistant role models.
