About the Regional Math/Science Center
The FSU Regional Math/Science Center is a federally funded Department of Education Upward Bound program designed to help low-income, potential first-generation college students achieve their goals of attaining college degrees, specifically in the fields of math and science. Participants in the program conduct a multi-week scientific research project. The RMSC strives to develop exciting hands-on projects that are relevant to modern life. While working on these projects, the practical use of the scientific method is emphasized. Students must develop testable hypotheses, help design the study, collect the data needed, analyze the data, draw conclusions based on the data collected and finally present their study in both oral and written form. Students learn about peer review as they present their study progress each week to the other students in the program. They also learn to use the computer for data analysis, for data processing their formal report, and for developing a scientific research poster to present to a panel of scientists and an audience of parents, university, and public officials. Students also participate in a variety of activities designed to promote strong study skills and positive social behaviors, as well as activities that provide recreational and cultural experiences.
