Project Stat is a multi-module web interface that will provide interactive content, teaching statistics on an easy-to-use platform as a free, online educational resource to enable STEM opportunities for students.
Project Stat will aim to provide STEM enrichment opportunities to middle school aged students to adults, especially those that are educationally disadvantaged. With underrepresented individuals in science, technology, engineering, and mathematical fields, it is critical for students to participate in competitions, research lab apprenticeships, and scholarships within the STEM fields to stay competitive and engaged. However, according to annual evaluation data by the Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP), reports have indicated that many students who participate in these programs are from underprivileged urban areas and do not have access to strong research design and statistical instruction necessary to fully utilize these opportunities.
The purpose of our project is to create a multi-module web interface that will provide interactive content, teaching statistics on an easy-to-use platform as a free, online educational resource. With this implemented, we can provide the teachings necessary for students participating in STEM opportunities and hopefully eliminate the knowledge gap of statistics in particular. On our website, we will be providing lessons to teach the content, labs to reinforce the learning, and quizzes to test their understanding of the many modules that we will have available.
