SMArT: Science and Math Achiever Teams
SMArT (Science and Math Achiever Teams) is a partnership with the Williamson County YMCA Afterschool Program. This mentoring program matches college students with third, fourth or fifth graders to complete a math- or science-related project of their choice over the course of about 10 weeks.
Interested in math, science and working with kids? SMArT invites SU students to consider joining the team for a great one-on-one relationship with an elementary school student that fosters their interest in the sciences. After getting matched up, you complete a great and exciting collaborative project over the course of the semester.
Here’s a list of past projects:
SMArTies meet Monday afternoons from 5-6pm. Both science and non-science majors are welcome!
