FSU's STEM Outreach for At-Risk Youth (SOAR)

ASAP participated in the STEM Outreach for At-Risk Youth (SOAR) program at Florida State University. The SOAR program facilitates the involvement of undergraduate students in developing and implementing mentoring programs that expose underrepresented youth to science and technology. ASAP’s participation in the SOAR program represents an extension of activities developed for the Teens and Transportation workshops conducted at the annual Transportation Day events. Dr. Lisa Spainhour, ASAP Outreach and Education Committee Chair, worked with two underrepresented minority students, who in turn, developed instructional materials and conducted three hands-on mentoring sessions in the local community.
