Abstract

The Office of Minority Engineering Programs (OMEP) has developed a collaborative effort with industry to expose minority high school students interested in mathematics and science to the exciting and diverse discipline of engineering. The Arizona State University (ASU) OMEP and the ASU Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement (MESA) program hosted two one-week residential summer programs sponsored by a grant from the GTE Foundation. The program served high school juniors and seniors with a focus on historically under-represented minority group as outlined in the grant. The continuous exposure of engineering to secondary students is a major step in meeting the demand of the industry.
