    Project
    A non-profit organization that strives to engage middle school students of all ability and interest levels in fun, challenging math programs, in order to expand their academic and professional opportunities.
    Description
    The MATHCOUNTS Foundation is a non-profit organization that strives to engage middle school students of all ability and interest levels in fun, challenging math programs, in order to expand their academic and professional opportunities. Middle school students exist at a critical juncture in which their love for mathematics must be nurtured, or their fear of mathematics must be overcome. MATHCOUNTS provides students with the kinds of experiences that foster growth and transcend fear to lay a foundation for future success. For more than 30 years MATHCOUNTS has provided enriching, extracurricular opportunities to students and free, high-quality resources to educators. For many years, Ole Miss Engineering has had the privilege of being involved in hosting competitions, providing tutoring for students in participating schools, and offering guidance to new schools starting up a program. As stated by the MATHCOUNTS Foundation, “Every child is unique, but we believe all children are capable of seeing the beauty and joy of math, whether they come to us already passionate about math, or intimidated by it.”
  • National Society of Black Engineers: Dr. McCarty mccarty@olemiss.edu
    Project
    The National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), with more than 29,900 members, is one of the largest student-governed 501(C)(3) non-profit organizations in the country and is constantly growing an international presence. Here at the Ole Miss Chapter we strive to accomplish a variety of activities, from middle and high school outreach programs.
    Description
    We stimulate and develop student interest in various engineering disciplines (Chemical, Electrical, Mechanical, etc.). We strive to increase the number of minority students studying engineering at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Some of our chapter's present activities include tutorial programs, group study sessions, high school/junior high outreach programs, promoting technical seminars and workshops, a national communications network (NSBENET), and attendance at our annual national convention (career fairs, awards, scholarships, etc.). We constantly collaborate with other Ole Miss organizations to help magnify our efforts to promote STEM subjects. If you are interested in joining our growing organization, please contact us.
