Title: JROTC, but with Scientists
Author: Ludovice, Peter J. ; Morrison, Ed ; Roberts, Katelyn
Abstract: The Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) attempts to recruit military officers from High Schools by having them interact with military officers. Ed Morrison from Barrow County Schools, and Warren Matthews from Georgia Tech will talk to us about using a Race to the Top Grant to use scientists and engineers to recruit students into the Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. The main difference as that this program uses more interactive video conferences with scientists and fewer pushups. Georgia Tech Biomedial Engineering student Katelyn Roberts also explains how this Direct to Discovery program in Barrow county motivated her current educational path.
