Spread the Gospel of OR to high schools

by Ken Chelst on October 14th, 2012

I am on my way to present to department chairs an update of Project MINDSET.
Goal: Seek more apostles to reach out to HS
Project MINDSET – 4th year high school math course (with textbook) based on OR. It was developed with $3.3 million NSF funding. Course is two semesters: 1) Deterministic and 2) Probabilistic
Partner universities (Wayne State U., NC State, UNC Charlotte and Georgia Tech)
4000+ high school students study curriculum in dozens of high schools in MI, NC, and GA
Statewide roll out in progress in NC and GA
Individual schools in NYC, Indianapolis, and San Diego suburb.
