STEM THROUGH AUTHENTIC RESEARCH AND TRAINING
STEM occupational demand continues to increase, but many students lack key experiences and road maps to consider STEM careers. First generation, female, disabled, and students of color remain underrepresented in STEM. The START Program aims to strengthen and diversify the STEM community and enrich future STEM higher education, research, and innovation. START sponsors STEM teacher professional development and provides mentorship and authentic STEM experiences to underrepresented students, from middle school through graduate school.
