The issues that face Hispanic and underrepresented students in their efforts to secure STEM education in urban colleges and, ultimately, employment in STEM fields are varied.  The broad areas of intervention to address them seem to fall into a set of broad issue areas.

Internships and Projects, two means by which a student may gain hands-on experience to improve their job readiness, are among them.

Internships (taking place at the company’s location under company supervision) and projects (taking place on campus under faculty supervision) offer two paths for experiential learning.  This breakout session will explore the issues associated with student work readiness, exclusive of classroom knowledge of theory, and the degree to which an experiential learning approach might address those issues and improve work readiness.
