SEP Social Justice Workshop: The Underrepresentation Curriculum Project

The Underrepresentation Curriculum Project

What if we could equip students with the tools of science to examine science itself? The Underrepresentation Curriculum (URC) is a free, flexible curriculum for STEM instructors to teach about injustice and change the culture of STEM. Using tools such as data analysis, hypothesis creation, and investigation, students look critically at science through the lenses of equity and inclusion. By comparing the general population to similar data describing scientists, students can explore issues of social justice in STEM. In this session, we will explore the curriculum, take a deep dive into a few of the lessons, and discuss modifications and extension options for implementing these lessons. 

The workshop will be held on Saturday March 5th, from 9:30 - 11:00 am PT. Presented by the Science Education Partnership at Fred Hutch in conjunction with: NSTA District XVII (AK, OR, WA), NSTA District XVI (CA, HI, NV), and NSTA District XV (ID, MT, WY).
