Abstract

This paper will examine the incorporation of technology into the curriculum for New Jersey Institute of Technology's Upward Bound Mathematics & Science Program (UBMS). UBMS provides high school participants with the opportunity to spend a fraction of their summer and academic school year studying in state-of- the-art science, mathematics, computer laboratories and smart classrooms. The program goal is to enhance the participants' academic ability and interest in technology by providing hands-on opportunities to work on research projects with university faculty and mentors. We will also examine the influence of incorporation of Technology on bridging the Digital Divide and Computer Equity for groups under-represented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. A review of the effects of technology on our participants in their educational attainment at the secondary and post-secondary levels is presented.
