of Science degree.
Next Step Program has two major components or phases Next Step One
(Phase One) and Next Step Two (Phase Two):
Step One (Phase One)
on introductory summer classes and workshops designed to
enhance foundational skills in mathematics and physics and laboratory
skills in the sciences. Introduces freshman and sophomore
students to the necessary skills, techniques, and methodology
requisite for scientific research. Stipend Support and supplemental
tutoring for participants is featured.
of students to "Research Experiences for Undergraduates"
by using oral and poster presentations of summer research project

workshop. Build and enhance foundations in algebra, trigonometry,
analytic geometry, and physics. Sharpen problem-solving skills.
a Physics Lecture Course: Physics: An OverviewIntroduce
and sharpen fundamental understanding of the laws of physics which
govern our everyday world. Problem solving sessions are conducted..
Next Step Two
