Science Education at Bryn Mawr College
supported by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute

Program History

2004-2008 Program Components

"As a liberal arts college for women, Bryn Mawr is committed to 1) 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 2) 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. The goals of our current proposal are to 1) recruit and retain science majors, 2) expose science students to broadly applicable computational methods and increase their understanding of the connections within and among traditional disciplines, and 3) encourage undergraduates to pursue a wide range of careers requiring sophistication in science."
