P20 STEM Education Innovation Lab - See Blue Mathematics Clinic & Camp

Grants and Contracts Details

Description

This study is designed to develop both theoretical understandings and operational skills in working with middle and high school students who struggle in mathematics. The See Blue Mathematics Clinic’s goal is to help these students become College & Career ready in mathematics. The See Blue STEM Camp’s goal is to expose middle school students (grades 5-8) to a variety of STEM fields through project-based instruction in order to increase their interest in a STEM career. The STEM Camp will serve middle school students entering grades 5-8 ranging in ages from 10-14. We anticipate serving 140 middle school students from across the state between the two camp sessions. Preservice teachers will also be involved as facilitators and mentors during the two weeks of camp. Value of the Project It is essential that all students have a strong understanding of mathematics to successfully compete in today’s global economy. The See Blue Mathematics Clinic is a resource to the University and surrounding Kentucky communities that provides free outreach support for students who are struggling in mathematics, particularly at the middle and high school levels. The model for this clinic can be used to set up other clinics throughout the Commonwealth of Kentucky and could serve as a national model as well. The data and results collected through the See Blue Mathematics Clinic will be able to provide additional information for working with struggling mathematics students for KCM, particularly at the middle and high school levels. KCM could utilize the results to develop targeted professional development for middle and secondary teachers.
