The ROSE (Resources and Opportunities in Science Education) Project pilot was conducted during the 2009/10 school year. This project, housed in the Office of Science Outreach, works with the parents of students in underrepresented groups (primarily African-American and Hispanic).
The goals of the project are to:
- increase the capacity for parents to mentor and encourage their children in the areas of science, engineering and technology.
- give parents positive experiences in science,
- increase parent knowledge in science, and
- bring parents and their children to the Sonderegger Science Center on the Edgewood campus to gain familiarity and comfort with the college science environment.
In December 2012 Edgewood hosted Science Snacks, an evening of interactive science exploration stations in the Sonderegger Science Center.
