Collaborative Research: Creating a STEM Pipeline for Low Income and Immigrant Youth (STUDIO: Build Our World)

SUMMARY

124 low income immigrant middle and high school students living in Seattle Public Housing participate in a year long program focused on mentoring, tinkering, and understanding the role that woman and people of color play in STEM fields.


DESCRIPTION

This strategies project focuses on a community-based model for providing middle and high school students who live in low-income public housing in the High Point neighborhood in Seattle, WA with opportunities to learn about STEM higher education and STEM careers and to develop interests, identities, and skills to pursue workforce opportunities in STEM. The University of Washington (UW) 3DL Partnership, a collaboration between UW College of Education and School of Social Work, together with UW Undergraduate Academic Affairs' Dream Project (which focuses on mentoring for college readiness and post-secondary success) will partner with Neighborhood House (NH).  NH is a comprehensive community-based organization (CBO) that has been serving Seattle and King County’s low-income, immigrant and refugee communities since 1906.
