Started in Fall 2008, the Furman STEM Mentors program provided a structure for Furman science majors to connect with teacher-selected middle school students whose “potential is outweighed by circumstance”. In fall 2018, we will be meeting with representatives from Tanglewood, Lakeview and Berea Middle to consider how best we can collaborate and support their students. The mentoring program will not be running in 2018 but we do hope to engage in a new collaborative effort with these schools in 2019.
Get involved with our mentor program.
Since 2011, Furman has been coordinating a program that enables teachers to access handheld, digital microscope for use in their classroom. Learn more.
Linking two nationally distinguished campus efforts, Furman’s summer research programs and Bridges to a Brighter Future, has proven to be a great success and to date, over 30 BBF students have participated. Read more.
For the fifth consecutive year, up to 8 students enrolled in the South Carolina Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics will have the opportunity to complete their mandatory 6-week research experiences through a residential program at Furman University. Learn how to be one of them.
This program [funded through our Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) grant 2008-2012] provided middle and high school STEM teachers an intensive 6-week research experience (~40 hours/week) under the direction of a Furman math or science faculty mentor.
