The George Engelmann Mathematics & Science Institute. Scholar Research Program Annual Report 1993.
Missouri Univ., St. Louis. George Englemann Mathematics & Science Inst.
This publication is a comprehensive report on the George Engelmann Mathematics and Science Institute's Scholar Research Program (SRP) and its activities in 1993. The SRP provides high school students who have successfully completed an earlier Engelmann program the opportunity to experience and practice the active components of the scientific enterprise in a real, ongoing research program conducted under the mentorship of an established scientist or mathematician. The report first presents basic information such as the program's mission statement, names of members of an advisory council, and a general program description. The following section gives detailed description of the SRP program, its goals and objectives, its disciplinary focus, and activities held throughout the year. These events include orientation, research experiences, seminars, career conferences, and a young scholar confirmation ceremony. The report also describes details of a program evaluation and presents a summary of student and mentor responses. Among the evaluation findings were overwhelmingly positive student and mentor responses to direct research lab experiences. Appendixes contain copies of relevant schedules, program formats, lists of participants, syllabus, series speakers, activity announcements, lists of student research papers, confirmation ceremony program and certificate, and student and mentor evaluation questionnaires.
