Mentor Center @ Shodor:
Opportunities for middle school, high school, and undergraduate students in Durham, N.C.
science, math, and computing workshops throughout the year for middle and high school students.
Students who are accepted into the Apprenticeship Program work through a set of goals to
develop skills that will
qualify them for paid jobs as participants in the Intern Program.
As interns, students will contribute their skills toward
developing educational materials that will then be launched on Shodor's website,
used by educators and students across the country, as tools to improve math and science education. In addition, interns often work off-site
with local organizations to utilize the tools they have helped to develop.

Pathways to CyberInfrastructure
Pathways to CyberInfrastructure project, we help organizations to incorporate Shodor's interactive math and science
activities into their existing programs for youth.
For example, we've worked with the WD Hill Community Center in Durham to add math and
science classes to their summer and after school programs. Children were introduced to
innovative concepts in physics, statistics, geometry and physical science using hands-on
Computing MATTERS is designed to build self-sustaining local infrastructures, enabling
students all over North Carolina, and eventually the nation, to grow from excitement to
experience to expertise. As such, the program partners with local schools and
organizations to offer student programs outside of Durham and the Research Triangle.
