James Chiu presented the ADDOMEx Consortium’s research to nearly seventy teachers participating in a program called Team-E Science, which will help them better understand engineering concepts. The program is part of a three-year endeavor to implement engineering curriculum in Merced and Mariposa county schools.
Underrepresented minority groups make up more than half of the student body at the university. Also, about 52 percent of students are majoring in science, technology, engineering and math.
During the next three years, an estimated 1,800 elementary students in Merced and Mariposa counties will be part of the program to attempt to improve their knowledge in those fields.
