A little History…
Our big year was 1991. One year after congress founded the national STEM program, the University of Idaho set up what was called TRIO Upward Bound Math and Science.
Since then we have delivered a range of experiences throughout the years, from Mars geology and snow physics, to exploring the melting glaciers at Glacier National Park. Students get fully engaged with the topic, working with researchers, in laboratories, designing their own investigations and presenting their work.
On Tuesday around 12:30 a.m., while I was listening to some of my music while trying to get to sleep, BOOM! The loudest thunder clap I have ever heard! At first I thought it was the fire alarm … again….
For multiple days throughout the past week we have been learning math equations in NIATT engineering classes. We’re also learning how to pass cars legally in a car simulator. Some of the students got into the simulator and went for…
So far at STEM Access, we students have experienced some amazing things and have had some awesome times. Although STEM is a lot of work, we’ve had a lot of fun too. On Saturday we visited the Moscow Farmers Market….
I’ll be the first to admit — I’m not a math and science person. When I was in fourth grade, I spent hours in school filling my math notebook pages with the phrase “I hate math” repeated over and over….
The Upward Bound STEM Access program has an incredibly busy schedule. We get up at 6:00 in the morning, and go to breakfast at 7:00. We have class until noon, eat lunch until 1:00, and we have more class time…
Today in class we did a lot of work studying the dynamics of passing vehicles. We did a lot of fun experiments. We also did a lot of un-fun equations. One of the fun things we did was working with…
