TECHPREPWas launched in 2008 with funding from Motorola Solutions Foundation’s innovation generation grant. TechPrep addresses the underrepresentation of minority women in stem by providing an educational enrichment program to empower middle school girls from underserved communities on long island. This robust program develops students’ competence and confidence in their math and science abilities by providing an intensive multi-level program that integrates science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (steam) with mentoring and application based hands-on activities. Over the course of one week in the summer, TechPrep students participate in intensive project based instruction facilitated by university faculty, graduate, and wise undergraduate mentors. Participation is based on three sequential modules that are taken over the course of three years. Module 1: Biology & Chemistry; 6th grade students discover living organisms and their chemical and physicochemical processes with lessons. Students will be encouraged to think and speak like scientists, work together in teams, and explore biology and chemistry in new and interesting ways. Module 2: Mathematics & Physics 7th grade students are introduced to applications of math and physics in real world situations. Included in these lessons are tours of facilities on campus which help further reinforce how basic principles can be scaled to cutting-edge research and provide students with exposure to real-world scientific environments. Module 3: Engineering & Innovation, 8th grade students employ the knowledge and skills acquired from their previous modules to build solutions to common environmental problems. The engineering module is unique in that it is centered on the student’s curiosity and a “learn-as-you-go” lesson format which challenges students to be critical and creative problem solvers.
