Middle school students were at the University of Kentucky in two separate one-week See Blue STEM camps this summer.
With funding from the National Science Foundation’s Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR), the UK College of Education partners with the UK College of Engineering on a yearly See Blue STEM Camp, targeting rising middle grades students (grades 5-8) especially females, students of colors and students disinterested in STEM. The grant also covers annual outreach efforts, such as STEM events in local schools, and a STEM club. The grant has been recognized as one of the top five National Science Foundation (NSF) models for broadening participation in STEM from underrepresented groups, which was announced at the 2015 National EPSCoR Conference in Portsmouth, NH.
