COVID-19 has changed our world, with students feeling tremendous impact.
Science education is a particular challenge, with school closures eliminating labs. If we don't jump in to engage and include students in research now, students may drift even further from science careers.
The eCLOSE SOLUTION:
eCLOSE @ Home brings the research to the students where they are- stuck at home. Participants will receive a fully equipped Lab-in-a-Box via mail. eCLOSE Science Teacher-Scientist teams will guide the experimental program through 15 hours of online, real-time instruction. Students will OWN their Labs-in-a-Box forever and engage with STEM professionals and recent eCLOSE graduates to prepare for college STEM majors and research careers.
Our goal: 20 eCLOSE @ Home Scholarships for students with financial challenges, particularly those impacted by COVID-19. EVERY dollar will go directly to student Scholarships.
