The Upward Bound Math-Science program is designed to help low-income and first-generation college students recognize and develop their potential, to excel in math and science, pursue post secondary degrees, and ultimately careers in the math and science professions. Activities, trips, and involvement are designed to help students become more familiar with S.T.E.M. (Science Technology Engineering Math) education.

Women in Science
Wesleyan Women in Science aims to both build a sense of community among women of science and their supporters and to foster love for the sciences on and off campus. Studens will join Mariah Schug, a Visiting Assitant Professor of Psychology here at Wesleyan and the Faculty Advisor of Wesleyan Women in Science. The students will participate in several labs on Wesleyan's campus, be provided food, and discuss topivs involving women in science. This is great opportunity to get a feel for college science courses and possible careers in science and medicine.
When: Tuesday, April 30th from 300-6:00 p.m.
*Please return your permission slip as soon as possible.
Save the date: Latest Summer 2013 tentative dates
