First2 Network- Class of 2022 Opportunity
Students are provided 2 weeks room and board, some entertainment, introductions to faculty, tours, research and $ 600. This opportunity is through Marshall’s partnership with the First2 Network (First2) program which is headed by Dr. Mike Norton. Additionally, a flier is attached to help distribute. Below is more information:
The First2 Network is pleased to announce a unique opportunity for current high school seniors who are first-generation college students or other underrepresented students who are majoring in STEM and getting ready to start their first year of college next fall. We are seeking rising freshmen who will be enrolled in a West Virginia community college, or a 4-year college in the fall of 2022, to join a program designed to support rural, first-generation students majoring in STEM fields. Please share this information with first generation and/or under-represented Marshall-bound HHS seniors who will be STEM majors whom you think might be interested.
First2 is an incredible opportunity for students, a great follow-up program with experiences like the Science Olympiad. Students who participate spend two 24/7 weeks (July 17 – July 29, 2022) at Marshall University working closely with Marshall faculty and First2 peer mentors in areas like:
* Chemistry (Nanotechnology applications of DNA)
* Biology (Bone growth) and
* Physics/Engineering (Physical processes in DNA purification)
These topics may change depending on student interest and motivation.
First2 students continue to meet during their freshmen and sophomore years and have opportunities for lab experience and paid internships. The students I work with at Marshall who have participated in the program absolutely love it. The program is funded by a grant and there is no cost to the students. First2 is a grassroots effort in West Virginia that aims to improve the college enrollment rate and success of undergraduate STEM students, with emphasis on rural first-generation students through their “first 2” years of college.
For Marshall, this is a retention effort. Nationally, 50% of the students who start out with a STEM major, change that major or drop out of college during the “first 2” years of their post-secondary education, and the statistic is worse for first generation students. Here in West Virginia, we have a lot of first-generation college students. First2’s goals include understanding the obstacles that face first gen STEM students and changing the systems that produce these obstacles. Immersing students in research the summer before they start college has been shown to have a positive effect of students’ views of themselves as future STEM professionals.

For high-school-aged youth in foster care across the state of West Virginia. This summer, we are launching a two-week immersive STEM camp for this underserved group of students free of cost. This residential camp will take place at Fairmont State campus this summer from July 10th through July 22nd.
This summer STEM camp will feature robotics, rocketry, weather, climate and essential life skills development curriculum. Students will not only experience life on a college campus and its abundant available resources, but they will also participate in these incredible opportunities:
This program was developed in partnership with Destination Space, KVC West Virginia and national non-profit, First Star. First Star KVC West Virginia Academy is a part of the larger First Star organization that is composed of 14 academies across the United States. Every academy is dedicated to the common goal of preparing high-school-aged youth in foster care for high school graduation, postsecondary education, and the transition into adulthood.
Students’ culminating experience is this two-week summer camp, but they will also continue to engage in the program throughout the year. Participating students will receive individualized support and mentoring, as well as participate in monthly Saturday Academies. One Saturday a month, students and program facilitators come together as a group to learn from a wide variety of professionals in STEM fields, enjoy fun activities like remote-controlled drone competitions, gain essential life skills, and more.
If you know a rising 9th-12th grade student in foster care who would benefit from this two-week STEM summer camp and the First Star KVC West Virginia Academy, contact Program Director, Walter Swoope, at email@example.com for more information!Waynesburg University CSI CampThe Camp will take place from June 13, 2022 to June 17, 2022, and we are thrilled to once again make this opportunity available to high school students. https://www.waynesburg.edu/csi-camp.
