  29. 29. American STEM Alliance  The Hispanic STEM Initiative is a network of stakeholder groups and organizations that emerged from a working group that convened at a conference on the subject of the American Competitiveness Initiative at the University of Texas at El Paso in April 2007.  Launched in March 2009 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the purpose of the Hispanic STEM Initiative is to form strategic alliances between stakeholder groups and organizations in order to maximize education outcomes for Hispanic students in the STEM disciplines, all along the education range.  It was established as a non-profit, tax-exempt organization in 2011 and convened its first meeting of the Board of Directors in Oakland, California in October of that same year.

  99. 99. Thinking About Future Careers Student responses revealed an increase in the degree to which students think about what type of job they will pursue in the future. • Matched pair t-test • Statistically significant at p < .05 • Increase of 0.2 standard deviation change over a relatively short period of time • Of 48 students previously “ambivalent,” average response increased from 2.00 to 2.33 • Caution: Parallel with other school activities
  100. 100. Mathematics Careers, “Choir” Excluded • Students who strongly agreed with the statement “I would like to have a career that uses math” removed. • Students who had strongly disagreed with the statement “I will probably choose a career that doesn’t use much mathematics” removed. • Statistically significant (p < .000) improvement in math career interest. • Data strongly suggest that student engagement in Whyville positively influences students’ intentions to pursue a career that involves mathematics • Future question: Staying power could not be assessed.
