One of the challenges of starting a new HSTEM course in other institutions is the semester-long commitment for both the students and the instructors. Thus, we developed a condensed, 2-week model of the HSTEM course. The program will be divided into two parts. The first part will set the foundations of HSTEM with various readings and reflections, and the second part will feature student projects that will be presented in a community-wide meeting at the end of the course. This course will be piloted at Amherst College at the end of our Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program during the summer of 2018.
We have attached the 10-day timeline below.
