Dominican College RISE Program Promotes STEM Skills With O&R Grant

A new Dominican College pilot summer program is on the RISE, and it’s aimed at developing STEM skills among local secondary school students with an interest in science.

RISE stands for Research, Immersion in Science and Ecology and it steeps students from grades 9-12 in science during a three-week program. The curriculum rotates among three subjects: Microbiology, Chemistry and Biodiversity. O&R has awarded Dominican College a two-year, $22,200 grant to help develop the program.
