Enrollment in engineering, especially of females and minorities, has been declining. It is suspected that insufficient skills and interest in mathematics and lack of parental involvement are the cause of this decline. This research project, in collaboration with Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Worcester Public Schools, makes effective recommendations to Forest Grove Middle School on how they can increase student success and interest in mathematics. Information was gathered from students, parents, and teachers to provide both qualitative and quantitative data in the hopes of assessing the influences on recruitment and retention of middle school students into technology and engineering programs.
