JUMP into STEM is an online crowdsourcing community designed to motivate student engagement, especially among minority and female students, in STEM field research and innovation.
A key aspect to engaging students is connecting the JUMP into STEM program with the university/college architecture, engineering, and computer science departments. Interested universities and colleges can partner with JUMP into STEM to incorporate JUMP into STEM challenges into course work as a specific course requirement with an associated grade and/or as an extracurricular activity with eligibility for bonus credits.
Each JUMP into STEM challenge will be complemented and supported by a seminar series of two to three webinars designed to engage students. Key industry experts and field practitioners will be invited to speak on the challenge topic to inspire student participation and ideation.
