Expansion has occurred in the area of attracting non-traditional students and educators. Through a partnership with the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) we currently host students who come from alternative public high schools. Presented with many obstacles to their academic development the students in this program are given additional attention in the areas of science and mathematics so they can improve academically and pursue the goals they are capable of achieving. In addition, the SPO works with K-12 STEM educators through the STAR program at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo to bring teachers into the Laboratory for a research experience they can then take back into the classroom, making them more effective STEM educators. We have seen great success in both areas. Our BVSD students proceed to Universities or Community Colleges and our educators have reported increased productivity in the classroom.
