The Sciences

The Marshall Center for Intercultural Learning has created a science cohort for students of color majoring in the sciences or interested in science-related careers. In October 2004, Wheaton College hosted a conference for its students, and local high school students, that brought speakers from around the country to talk about pursuing science, either in college, graduate school or medical school. The Marshall Center aims to reach a broader group of students and deepen their learning by sponsoring regular meetings, workshops and funding for local and regional conferences. For detailed information about this opportunity, please contact Raquel Ramos.

pic of students at MOSThe Marshall Center sponsored a trip to The Boston Museum of Science this winter, '11, for students interested in the Sciences, to view the exhibit "Race: Are we so different?". This exhibit takes a fresh look at race through our biology, history and culture. We hope to provide more of these exciting trips in the future,
