STEM Focused High School and University Partnership: Alternative Solution for Senioritis Issue and Creating Students' STEM Curiosity
Icel, Mustafa; Davis, Matthew
Journal of STEM Education: Innovations and Research, v19 n1 p14-21 Feb-Mar 2018
The purpose of this study is to evaluate how the high school-college partnership reflects on "senioritis" and students' STEM curiosity. The term "senioritis" described in this paper refers to high school senior students who have completed most of their graduation requirement courses in their third year of studies. During the fourth year of high school, students may only need two or three credits to graduate which inherently causes the students to lose motivation. This then results in the aforementioned senioritis. Least credit requirements cause senior students senioritis and they have a lack of motivation in the fourth year of high school. This study aims to illustrate how K-16, a model high school-college partnership with local colleges, builds a scientific community that urban students can benefit from.
