The new STEM Boot Camp is a week long institute for students to go through the content of one of the courses (calculus I, intro to physics, general chemistry, cell biology etc.) and also learn about how to do well in college before even they start. The goals of the camp are:
to provide COS freshmen with an idea of what to expect during their first semester of college;
to bring an awareness of undergraduate research opportunities;
to increase retention of our COS students and;
to increase the likelihood that they will graduate with a STEM degree in four years.
The camp builds on the success of a Bio Boot Camp that was conducted last year. A quick summary of the camp can be seen in this video:
