In MAST, middle school students work in small groups of two to three with their tutor. As a result, each student has the opportunity to explore their own interests in science and science communication.
The Mentoring And Student Teaching program is a long-standing outreach program at Haverford College. MAST fosters curiosity and learning in STEM for 20-25 middle school students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds in science, through hands-on laboratory experiences and exercises in science communication.
MAST also supports the higher education success of undergraduate student tutors by helping them developing mentorship skills, promoting student leadership, and enriching their undergraduate experience through the sharing of STEM learning.
