Help GeoFORCE students thrive in college!
Preparing students for STEM degrees
College courses in calculus and chemistry often serve as gateways for students who dream of earning STEM degrees. Unfortunately, students commonly struggle to pass these courses and subsequently forego their initial ambitions.
Here at GeoFORCE, we’re ready to turn this trend around.
Join us in empowering GeoFORCE students who are entering their freshman year of college by preparing them for calculus and chemistry with a one-week residential Math and Science Institute at UT Austin this summer.
Twenty GeoFORCE student scholars will be challenged by classroom sessions in math (algebra, trigonometry, pre-calculus, calculus) and chemistry that will be supplemented by breakout sessions led by graduate student teaching assistants and undergraduate peer learning assistants (PLAs). Students will also practice honing their study skills and begin to experience college norms, such as writing professional emails and attending office hours.
Please join us!
We are raising money to provide this experience to students at no cost. This includes providing lodging and meals for our scholars, compensating instructors, TAs and PLAs, and covering the cost of materials. Please join us in changing the face of the STEM workforce - and students' lives - by supporting the GeoFORCE Math and Science Institute!
