North Carolina Univ., Chapel Hill. Mathematics and Science Education Network.
The University of North Carolina (UNC) Mathematics and Science Education Network (MSEN) Pre-College program is designed to increase the number of historically underrepresented students--minorities and females--who have sufficient interest and preparation to pursue mathematics and science fields at the university level, and to move into careers in science, mathematics, technology, engineering, and teaching. The Pre-College Program provides students in grades 6-12 with rigorous academic enrichment activities aimed at improving their science, mathematics, and communication skills. This status report of the MSEN Pre-College Program includes: (1) a message from MSEN; (2) a program summary; (3) a list of participating schools; (4) evaluation of program success including test scores and student educational goals; (5) lists of role models, speakers, teachers, field trips, and a description of several program events including MSEN Pre-College Day and Leadership Retreat; (6) a list of student awards; (7) a list of 1995 Pre-College graduates; and (8) a description of future plans.
