CityLab and Urban Squash: A New Pathway to Achieve STEM Success

Program Overview

  • The specific aims of this project are to: 1.Build and implement a new laboratory-based exercise physiology curriculum by leveraging the burgeoning partnership among Boston University and Fordham University, three urban squash education programs (SquashBusters of Boston/Lawrence, CitySquash of the Bronx, and StreetSquash of Harlem), and Squash + Education Alliance (previously known as the National Urban Squash and Education Association). 2.Investigate the role of Science Learner Identity in URM/low SES students as a predictor of sustained involvement in STEM activities. 3.Train undergraduate and graduate students from Boston University and Fordham University to serve as, near-peer mentors, learn science content and pedagogy, and teach the pre-college students. Assess the impact of these experiences on the university students and pre-college students. 4.Develop and begin to implement a national dissemination strategy to encourage the other seventeen urban squash education programs to adopt this model, particularly in association with nearby SEPA programs
