Diversity and Socio-Economic Status
Exposure to STEM-based curricula is a documented need necessary for all students in order to succeed in a modernized workforce. Underrepresented and low socio-economic status (SES) students require additional support when creating targeted programs to meet their needs. When students feel supported by a community of individuals centered around student-to-student interactions, greater favorable outcomes have resulted. The panel will be comprised of leaders from the University of Texas at Austin’s Equal Opportunity in Engineering Program, Women in Engineering Program, and the Texas Advanced Computing Centers Outreach and Education Program. Each of these leaders have successfully hosted both residential and non-residential summer programs, which both provide exposure to STEM concepts and address the needs of underrepresented and low SES K-12 students.
