SORT Class

MCB has a course called STEM Outreach and Recruitment Team

The purpose of the STEM Recruitment & Outreach (SORT) Team is to engage undergraduate students majoring in the life sciences in educational outreach by generating an interest in and promoting an understanding of the biological science topics among elementary school students, middle school students, high school students, fellow undergraduates, and the general public. In the area of recruitment (primarily the role of MCB Ambassadors) is to serve as representatives of the MCB department, and to assist current and potential future MCB students through related recruitment and outreach activities. This course will provide training in public speaking, outreach, and recruitment for participants.
