NC-Mathematics and Science Education Network Pre-College Program Saturday Academy
Saturday November 3, 2012 | 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM | Friday Institute, Nortel Workshop Room
The NC State University North Carolina Mathematics and Science Education Network Pre-College Program prepares underserved students at the middle and high school levels (grades 6-12) for careers in education and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The NCSU NC-MSEN Pre-College Program currently serves 450 students in Franklin, Granville, Johnston, Nash, and Wake Counties through year-round enrichment activities. The program partners with school districts to recruit students from underserved populations who have not been prepared to pursue college preparatory level mathematics and science-based courses.
Saturday Academies are held 12 times throughout the academic school year. During each of the sessions, students take classes in math, science, communications, robotics, and career awareness. All students take classes in math, science, and communications; the other classes vary for middle school students vs. high school students. Students are grouped according to their mathematics course that they are taking in school. The math, science, and communication courses are taught by certified teachers; the other classes such as robotics are taught by experts in the appropriate field. The courses are held on the campus of North Carolina State University and are a part of the student’s participation in the NC-MSEN Pre-College Program.
