    • “ Enabling the Progress of Science” Enabling the Progress of Science in African Americans Program © 2002,2008 A program for African American, miniorities and socio-economic underrepresented boys and girls interested in the technological sciences. Physicists, Engineers, laser designers, and general science hopefuls that may not have the skills to succeed or be performing to their full academic potential. Here they learn the art, discipline and thought technique of scientific discovery. An opportunity to contribute to public understanding of African Americans in Science, medicine, space exploration and technology. A chance to work closely with a distinguished core of African American scientists, technologists, educators, authors, and scholars. A chance for parents to be informed and empowered to help their child win with success. A place to prosper and develop their love of science and be apart of a larger scientific community where they are in the minority.
    • “ Enabling the Progress of Science” © 2002,2008 Faculty Andre’ Taylor Past Principal Investigator for Corning. Past Principle Investigator on NASA’s International Space Station 2.5m Fresnel lens telescope. Worked previously for NASA, National Science Foundation, to name a few (over 9 laboratories). He has published over ten scientific papers, some of which were published in, Optics Communication Magazine, NASA HBCU conference, the prestigious NCUR –10 conference, Conference of Black Physicists and Physics students at MIT. He has taught numerous classes and has years experience in similar programs. Guest Lecturers Numerous African American and other minority & majority guest lectures of local and international renown who are exceptional in their individual fields of science, technology and education.. Enabling the Progress of Science in African Americans Program
    • “ Enabling the Progress of Science” © 2002,2008 About the EPSAA program The Goal of this program is to enable all children, regardless of race, of high school and middle school age who are interested in science fields to believe in their intellectual, computational, and mental abilities to function at superior levels in the technical fields. The Science community is still well behind general society as it pertains to race relations. Many African Americans and other minorities are still very isolated and alone on their job. Their ideas are many times unappreciated or unheeded insight of their often high caliber qualifications as a result of the fact that African American and other minority candidates must many times be “overqualified” in order to be accepted in these sometimes unfriendly environments. The EPSAA program seeks to address this issue by assisting the creation of scholarly, exceptional, African American and minoritiy scientists, who are prepared for the rigor and unfortunately, too often reality of being under a microscope . It introduces science in a sensational form capturing not just the mind, but the imagination. Presenting science not as a career, but the pursuit of a quest. Thus enabling interns to deal with the frustration that all scientists face. Allowing them to be in it for the long haul. A program that encourages, edifies, strengthens, purifies, liberates, ennobles, and most of all enables students to succeed in science. Enabling the Progress of Science in African Americans Program
    • “ Enabling the Progress of Science” Enabling the Progress of Science in African Americans Program © 2002,2008 Curriculum Outline Introduction to Science Parental Involvement Scholastic Tools/Preparation Internship/Conference Meet the Scientist Life Choices Introduction to Science This portion of the program introduces science to the participants. It includes three field trips: Planetarium, U of R cyclotron laboratory, and possible a Sunday Corning laboratory excursion. It also includes a one and a half hour seminar on “Science, boring?” which includes a video copulation and “what would the world be like with out science?” imagination task. Parental Involvement This is a preprogram initiative requirement. A one to two hour question and answer session on the assistance they must give in order for their children to successfully finish this program, obtain careers in this discipline, scholastic help suggestions, and finally, orientate them on the internship program and the assistance they must give their child in preparation for their first science conference. Scholastic Tools/Preparation This short one to two hour seminar equips interns with the scholastic tools imperative to their positive development. Topics include, but aren’t limited to,: ‘How to study science and math’, ‘How to use imagination when attempting to understand’, ‘Math is hard issue’, ‘Time required to study’, ‘Practice makes Perfect’, ‘The Arts and Science a necessary marriage’, ‘Exploring Science for fun’, ‘Reading is Science’, ‘Teaching Yourself before Class’ and finally, ‘The Temporal and Visual Brain Melt:TV’.
    • “ Enabling the Progress of Science” Enabling the Progress of Science in African Americans Program © 2002,2008 Curriculum Outline Continued Introduction to Science Parental Involvement Scholastic Tools/Preparation Internship/Conference Meet the Scientist Life Choices Internship/Conference This is one of the most exciting portions of the program. Where the proverbial laser meets the optic target. Students use the entire program as a research project culminating with building a laser and presenting a paper and having it published for a Conference. There each project will be judged by well known African American Scientists. The project consists of proving whether African Americans students have the ability to be successful scientists and engineers. The data will be taken from class room experiences, lecturers, guest lecturers, their own independent research, and their and their classmates success of building and understanding a laser. The pre-mentioned conference also serves as a measure of the success of the program and consumption of the information of the students. Meet the Scientist This introduces the students intimately with African American scientists. So they are able to see and handle scientists that look just like them, came from similar backgrounds and experiences in person. Students are also acquainted with past scientists of note so they are familiar with the length and breadth of African American involvement in American science and technology. This also gives students an introduction into the wide opportunities in the world of science.
    • “ Enabling the Progress of Science” © 2002,2008 Curriculum Outline Continued Introduction to Science Parental Involvement Scholastic Tools/Preparation Internship/Conference Meet the Scientist Life Choices Life Choices This part of the program goes over the effects of choices on the probability of a successful career. Interns are given the opportunity to experience a buying spree. They are allowed to purchase a house, a car, wardrobe, furnishings, and vacation, stock and bank account. After this is accomplished students are able to compare career decisions with their respective buying power. Interns are also educated on careers in illegal drug sales, a doctorate degree in physics, and a factory/non-college degree career and their longevity. In addition interns are educated on the necessity of choosing a good secondary school. Enabling the Progress of Science in African Americans Program
    • “ Enabling the Progress of Science” © 2002,2008 Students Where will our students come from? We expect some to come from exceptional academic pasts and presents. Others may have not done so well traditionally in math and science. Yet, being a successful scientist has little to do with having a perfect academic past. Einstein’s failing grades in mathematics and his teachers remarks about the surety of his failure in physics demonstrate the erroneous relations made on grades alone. Thus, this program seeks students like Einstein, who have a true love or interest in science. Those who have a strong interest, but lack the skills, impetus or confidence to succeed. The ideology is that passion first drives excellence in science and skills and other prerequisites are secondary. If one has passion it will drive him or her to seek out the other necessary skills. At the very least hopefuls will see the pursuit of science as a life quest and not as a career. This former change in paradigm offers a higher probability of success than the latter.
