USM LSAMP students featured by Dr. @Renetta_Tull at #NSFNextGenSTEM DC forum [@NSF_EHR, @UMBC] #ThinkBigDiversity @UMD_LSAMP

This morning, USM’s LSAMP program was discussed at STEM Learning for All forum, supported by NSF. USM’s LSAMP was discussed in the context of mentoring models and mentoring messaging. The talk presented USM’s LSAMP students as the Nobel Laureates and STEM leaders of the future. The suggestion was that models of STEM identity should be used to help students to see themselves as STEM contributors and leaders for the long-term, not just for the purpose of getting the diploma or next degree.
