Collaborative Communities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics Education
The C2STEM program is a part of the ESTRELLA (Excellent Schools, Teaching, and Research for English Language Learner Achievement) grant awarded to UW Oshkosh and is designed to recruit and retain underrepresented students (i.e. female students, students whose first language is not English, and/or students of color) into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education at UW Oshkosh.
Over the next two years, this project will create a university-based collaborative community comprised of pre-education students, university multicultural education advisors, retention specialists, STEM faculty, and PK-12 educators/coordinators to support academic success and social/emotional well being for the participants. In addition, these communities will attempt to connect the UWO content and coursework to field experiences and teaching opportunities with K-12 students. The agenda of the communities will be to provide participants STEM education opportunities in meaningful ways (i.e. teaching experiences, peer mentoring, and networking).
The C2STEM project seeks to bridge the gap between underrepresented students who are accepted into the university and interested in education to those who continue their studies though the College of Education and Human Services in STEM education.
