CEISMC Academic Mentoring

About CEISMC Academic Mentoring

CEISMC, the Center for Education Integrating Science, Mathematics, and Computing, is a part of Georgia Tech's College of Sciences and serves as its primary K-12 outreach division. One of our principal missions is to improve

science and mathematics education throughout the state of Georgia. As part of this mission, the CEISMC Academic Mentoring Program seeks to place college students and college graduates in local schools and classrooms.

Pathways to College provides academic mentoring for middle and high school students in the Meadowcreek High School cluster.  Academic mentors meet with high school students during the school day to improve their academic performance, expose them to STEM careers, and provide information about college.  Mentors also serve as facilitators for a weekly afterschool program for middle school students.  Mentors facilitate hands-on-activities with students, engage them in writing, and expose them to STEM careers.  Some mentors facilitate activities for a weekly afterschool program at two local middle schools.  The afterschool program provides exposure to STEM careers for students by engaging them in hands-on-actitiivies, demonstrations, and guest speakers.
