High School Outreach
  • Propsal due Feb 1 to ASA (funding is for only one year starting ??)
Some ideas
  • Poster competition - may require outside funding and high level of interest
  • Explore "career days" at high schools (specifically schools with AP statistics [There are 25 in the area])
  • Vanderbilt science outreach program is a possible affiliation
  • Chamber of commerce career academics?
  • Locate ASA-MT members who work in other fields than biostatistics
"Teacher day" This was the most popular idea.
  • Contact high school math (stat) teachers and invite them to lunch meeting (conference) to let them know about statistical professionals in the area
    could help move things along in terms of future events
  • pair ASA members with teachers (Mixer)
  • possibly a few talks (who are the statisticians? Different career paths. presenting interesting researches)
  • provide teachers with information about statistical professionals (capacities in which they work, background, etc.) What resources are available to them?
  • invite math and science teachers (or keep focus narrow)
  • timing - possibly fall or before semester starts
  • continuing education for teachers?
  • note: send an email to Elizabeth if you wish to see the proposal before submission
