Wolverine Pathways (WP) is a program for middle and high school students from the communities of Detroit, Southfield, and Ypsilanti in Southeast MI. Wolverine Pathways provides learning experiences that will help students succeed in school, college, and future careers, and is one of Michigan’s featured Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) programs. Students who complete the program and are admitted to the University of Michigan receive a full four-year tuition scholarship to Michigan.
This summer, we are developing and leading an activity for rising seniors in the WP program. Our activity is called “Prove it! How to find and use data to answer questions you care about”. The goal of Prove It is to teach students how to:
- identify questions of interest,
- refine those questions into something that can be addressed with data,
- access and work with reliable sources of data,
- draw conclusions from data, and
- present their findings in an accessible, engaging manner.
That's where you come in: we are looking for 9 graduate students who can assist with this activity. If you think you might be interested, please read more in this google document. (Anyone logged in to their UMich account should have access.) Note that students will be paid according to the UMich hourly pay scale for graduate students.
