"SMASH Stanford Scholars" a team to help the LEVEL PLAYING FIELD INSTITUTE...
The Summer Math and Science Honors Academy (SMASH) is a free of cost, STEM-intensive, college preparatory program for underrepresented high school students of color. SMASH boasts a rigorous 5-week, 3-year summer STEM enrichment program which provides access to rigorous coursework and access to mentors, role models, and support networks of students of color. SMASH scholars remain engaged during the school year through monthly STEM activities and workshops. The program not only reinforces the students’ STEM academic identities, but also focuses on developing their critical thinking, civic awareness, leadership and sense of social responsibility.
We are the SMASH Stanford site and we are looking for people to fund our program and studies. As a team we need $14,000 in order to continue our college preparatory courses from edx.org. Each course is approximately $50 and we have 28 scholars that need to complete 10 courses over the next 3 years. These couses will prepare us for college and better our future. We recently finished our first year in high school and are really looking forward into learning more about the world.
