Mentoring and Student Teaching (MAST)
The Mentoring And Student Teaching program is a long-standing outreach program. The program provides laboratory experience and writing tutorials for 20-25 Philadelphia area middle school students who come from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in the sciences.
The young students come to the Haverford campus for five Saturdays in the spring semester and spend the day engaging in scientific experiments and science communication. Haverford and Bryn Mawr College students prepare the course curricula, and work with the middle school students in small groups. Haverford College faculty act as advisers for this program.
