University Studies Capstone Fall 2017: Empowering and Advancing Women and Underrepresented Students in STEM

This capstone will focus on building skills in effective communication, negotiation, leadership, networking, mentoring, and professional development (leading focus groups and interviewing). These are skills traditionally not learned in a classroom and are essential to advancing successful STEM careers. Capstone students will work in teams to design, implement, and evaluate a 1-day workshop to coach and transfer these essential STEM career preparation skills to high school students in the Apprenticeships in Science and Engineering program” (ASE).
