STEMM in Rural Appalachia

STEMM—science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medical science—is a critically underrepresented career choice among high school students from rural Appalachia. In partnership with the National Institutes of Health Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) program, a multidisciplinary cohort of investigators at the University of Tennessee are exploring mechanisms to increase interest in STEMM-based majors by providing interventions and hands-on research experiences to high school students from Appalachian counties in Tennessee. Please see our dedicated website for more information on this unique program: PIPES (Possibilities in Postsecondary Education and Science among Rural Appalachian Youth).
