HHMI Science Education Program at Bryn Mawr College 2008-2012

Who We Are

As a liberal arts college for women, Bryn Mawr College is committed to:

  • encouraging large numbers of young women to major in disciplines in which they have been traditionally underrepresented and to pursue graduate study and careers in the sciences, and
  • ensuring science literacy among all students.

Our past grants from HHMI have helped us to strengthen science education by supporting interdisciplinary approaches to teaching in biology and the related sciences; undergraduate research opportunities; use of computing technologies in the sciences; and professional development for precollege science teachers.
