Transcript of DOE STEM presentation

Discovering Healthcare Careers STEM Initiatives Chicago Teachers’ Center Now I know that I don't have to be a lawyer or a doctor - I can be a programmer or a robotics engineer." Vasuija, Mather H.S. Students participate in VEX robotics
competitions and learn physics, mathematics and computer programming. Middle and high school students participate in professional-level hands-on computer-aided design work for buildings and communities. Robotics Architecture GEAR UP Transition to High School Participants were found to have significantly higher rates of passing their first-semester 9th grade algebra classes.

Students were more likely to be ‘on-track’ to graduate from high school at the end of 9th grade than students who did not participate. 89% of GEAR UP seniors completed and submitted a FAFSA application.

Awarded over 30 million dollars in scholarship money for college.

Received 12 of the 24 Gates Foundation Scholarships awarded to students in Chicago Public Schools. GEAR UP Outcomes Essential to our success are strong partnerships. Students are exposed to block-based and javascript programming to create mobile applications for competitions. I made my own phone
app ... WHAT?!" Mobile Applications Jairo, Roosevelt H.S. Students learn game design concepts, programming, and using motion sensors to control their games. In addition, they interact with industry programmers and designers. Children's Memorial Hospital/GEAR UP

world competition." Jose, Saucedo Elementary Scholastic School [GEAR UP staff] had my back 100%, which I totally appreciate. I owe a lot to them for staying on me." Keyonta, Michele Clark H.S. Partners CTC Programs and Initiatives I have been part of the program for 3 years. Now I see the importance of math, science and technology. I will be the first in my family to be an engineer." UPWARD BOUND MATH AND SCIENCE How How many people can say that they got to watch brain surgery?!" Angel Alcazar, former Hancock H.S. student I am planning on coming back to Children’s, but not as a student. I will come back as one of them! As one of the people who will bring joy and help to children..." Maritza Acevez, Curie H.S. GEAR UP is a perfect partner because they not only work with the student, they work with the entire family, just like we do at Children's." Maria Rivera, CMH I now know about many different careers in healthcare and see how they work together as part of a team. I love how the hospital is a puzzle and everyone has a connection with each other." Kathleen Conde, Curie H.S. I now understand. I want to be someone who finishes a four-year degree and pursues a career in healthcare.” Juliana Sosa, Foreman H.S.

This program has been very important to me because it has helped me create a bridge with my son. Now he is aware of my involvement in his school, and I don't feel isolated anymore because I know what is happening." www.chicagoteacherscenter.org www.facebook.com/chicagoteacherscenter www.twitter.com/ctc_neiu Yolanda, GEAR UP parent Education and
