Although it may seem logical for two students with similar high school backgrounds and interests in STEM to have similar probabilities of obtaining a Bachelor's degree in the field, this is unfortunately not the case.

A startling new study shows that the probability of passing introductory STEM courses and successfully getting a STEM degree varies dramatically with a student's gender, ethnicity, and socio-economic status — even when their high school preparation is equal.

This event is tailored for STEM educators and administrators who are looking for practical strategies that can be put in place for the 2023-2024 year to overcome this disparity and raise pass rates. We hope you will join us for this important webinar.  

Labster’s webinar will showcase:

  • Q&A with Dr. Nate Brown: Dr. Brown will answer your questions on how institutions can teach introductory STEM courses where minority students are successful — without lowering academic standards. Learn more about Dr. Nate Brown here.
  • Faculty Roundtable Discussion: Your peers get candid about what contributes to low STEM retention, what they are currently doing to meet students where they are, and how they plan to increase STEM pass rates, especially among non-STEM majors. This will be your chance to learn from one another.
  • Product Updates: Be the first to get a sneak peek into a free, platform-wide Labster update that will enhance the learner experience.

Mark your calendars and join us on Thursday, April 27, 2023 from 11:00am-12:00pm ET.
