Prime the Pipeline Project:
Students in the Class of 2011 and 2012
We are pleased to invite you to participate in Prime the Pipeline Project (P3): Putting Knowledge To Work funded by the National Science Foundation. All meetings are held at the Polytechnic campus of Arizona State University.
The P3 Project is finding new ways to prepare high school students for college and exciting careers in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and business.
- Work in scientific villages, along with other high school students, experts from business and industry, ASU professors, high school teachers and ASU undergraduate student mentors, to solve challenging problems.
- Engage in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and business projects as for example:
Off Balance: Water, Plants, and You
Music Technology: Bach to Rock
Photography: Creativity and Technology
- Learn about new strategies for problem solving and working collaboratively as well as learning about the preparation necessary for STEM careers.
- Have access to the ASU project website and all ASU project-related software.
About Prime the Pipeline
Prime the Pipeline Project began in March 2009. Spring 2011 will be our final semester for this project. All teachers and high school students in the project participate in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and business explorations to apply mathematics and science principles.
Villages meet on the ASU Polytechnic campus to explore hands-on projects after school one afternoon per week for 9 weeks.
You will be working in small scientific villages consisting of about 12 high school students and 12 high school STEM-B teachers, along with ASU student mentors, and village leaders. Village leaders are faculty from ASU colleges and scientists from business and industry.
