Science and Self-Determination/FIPSE, 1980. Final Report.
The FIPSE-funded Science and Self-Determination Project at the University of Colorado at Boulder (established through the American Indian Educational Opportunity Program) was threefold. The project was: (1) to provide a month-long summer science/math institute on the university campus for 35 Native American Secondary students from a 10-state region; (2) to offer workshops during the academic year to enhance the skills of counselors and/or teachers who work with Native American students at the grassroot level in schools throughout the recruiting region (South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana); and (3) to "track" participating students through the balance of their secondary academic careers to influence entry into collegiate academic careers within one or another discipline of science (a long-term goal). The 1980 report describes each component of the project in reference to planning, selecting students or workshops, experiential learning activities, and results of each component. Appendices include forms, letters, questionnaires, and list of participants for the summer institute; a full text of the student handbook; and a schedule of events for the summer institute. Other appendices are resumes of workshop instructors and the project's evaluation statistical results. (ERB)
