Grades 6-8

Minority males are underrepresented in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workforce as compared to their representation in the US population. Roadblocks that continue to challenge minority males include: disparity in access to high quality STEM educational resources, a lack of role models, and a shortage of highly trained, minority STEM educators. Drawing on findings from current work, this Design and Development Launch Project, led by Morgan State University, will build on an existing regional partnership of four Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) that are working together to improve STEM outcomes for middle school minority male students local to Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland, North Carolina A & T University, in Greensboro, North Carolina, Jackson State University in Mississippi, and Kentucky State University in Frankfort, Kentucky. Additional partners include eight minority serving institutions, the National CARES Mentoring Network, the Verizon Foundation, and SRI International. Using collective impact-style approaches, these partners will address two common goals: 1) Broaden the participation of underrepresented minority males in science and engineering through educational experiences that prepare them for careers in STEM fields; and (2) Create a Network Improvement Community focused on STEM achievement in minority males. Our vision for collective impact of the eSEM project is to leverage a Network Improvement Community that will help to increase the number of minority males in grades 6 – 12 who are prepared for college and STEM careers, with the skills needed to participate in the STEM workforce.
