Racial Inequity in High School STEM Courses Taken and College STEM Retention

Saturday, March 25 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Aisle


STRAND: Equity and Justice

Show Details

Using a quantitative research design, we examined the relationship between students’ years of high school study in STEM courses and their retention in STEM college majors, racial differences in high school STEM courses taken, and racial differences in college STEM retention.

TAKEAWAYS:
Our findings showed that Black and Latinx STEM undergraduate students tend to leave their STEM majors at higher rates and take less high school Physics and Chemistry courses than their Asian American and White peers.

SPEAKERS:
Peter Cho (Student), Young Kim (Professor: Azusa, CA)
