Credible research points to one distressing fact: minority students, both male and female, continue to lag behind in terms of math and science performance. Just as important is the fact that failure to study math leads to loss of opportunity, most often for young women and minority students. It can close doors to vocational and technical schools, to colleges, and to rewarding careers. ICEMS’s mission is to foster excellence in mathematics and science, and to increase the number of minority students who pursue advanced degrees in these subjects. ICEMS currently targets 120 middle school students in three different public middle schools in the city of Atlanta. It is a three-year program that targets 6th-graders, who are committed to remaining in the program through 8th grade.
