Abstract

A new program that improves the recruitment of underrepresented students has been recently implemented at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi. The program is designed to attract juniors in high schools to participate in two-week summer workshops and a follow-up science and technology exhibit. The workshops introduce students to college life, involve them in hands-on activities, and encourage them to pursue science and engineering careers. This paper presents the evaluation results of summer 2003 workshops.
