Project Accelerate blends the supportive structures of a student's home school, a rigorous online course designed specifically with the needs of under-served populations in mind, and hands-on laboratory experiences, to make AP Physics accessible to under-served students. The project could potentially lead to the success of motivated but under-served students who attend schools where the opportunity to engage in a rigorous STEM curriculum is not available.
About Me (Bio):
Director Project Accelerate a university high school partnership program closing the access gap to STEM for economically disadvantaged and under-served populations.
