Upward bound research project

Neosho, MO – The Upward Bound Summer Academy programs will host a showcase symposium on Thursday, June 29, 8:30-10:30am and 2:30-4:30pm in Wright Conference Center located inside the Arnold Farber building on the Neosho campus.

Research projects range from crime scene investigation to chickens to graphic design with 16 different classes in all. Students take classes that will give them an overview of the high school math and English classes they will have when they return to high school. The students select a research project based on interests and possible career opportunities they wish to pursue.

Upward Bound serves 300 students from 37 high schools in southwest Missouri. This summer there are nearly 250 students participating in the summer academy. The summer academy provides on campus living similar to a college experience for five weeks and concludes with a cultural trip. This year the participating students will travel to Chicago, where they will turn an art museum and universities.

UB is a federally funded Trio program that serves 1st generation students in preparation for college.
