UMKC awarded $2.5 million grant to coordinate robust STEM education and workforce preparation in seven area school districts
Introducing KC HealthTracks
The University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Nursing and Health Studies and the School of Computing and Engineering, working with community partners including KC STEM Alliance and seven school districts, received a five-year grant for $2.5 million from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health National Workforce Diversity Pipeline.
The grant forms KC HealthTracks to create improved STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) curriculum and experiences for students from 11 under-resourced Kansas City area high schools. The goal is to prepare the students for higher education and career paths in healthcare and biosecurity.
During the five-year project period, 200 students enrolled in biomedical sciences classes — 40 per year — will receive educational support from UMKC faculty advisers as mentors; campus visits at UMKC; a UMKC-hosted summer program; extensive lab and simulation experiences; Project Lead the Way curriculum content specialization; CPR certification; math and science tutoring; and ACT preparation.
