Abstract

Summer workshops to attract local area high school students to science and engineering careers have been conducted at Texas A&M-Corpus Christi for the last three years. These workshops are designed to improve the recruitment of underrepresented students in science, engineering, and technology by introducing them to college life, involve them in hands-on activities, and offering them network opportunities. Our goal is to make the activities of this project an integral part of the recruiting and training efforts and expand them to reach a larger geographical area and a higher number of underrepresented students. This paper will describe the program and present some results.
