SMASH UCLA is a free residential program hosted by CEED in partnership with the Level Playing Field Institute. This program will admit 20 – 40 current ninth grade students to participate in a five-week, intensive, computer science, math and science academy. SMASH is geared toward high achieving and economically disadvantaged high school students who are underrepresented in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields.
- Prepare students from underrepresented communities to be competitive in STEM related studies at competitive universities.
- Educate students about graduate school opportunities and encourage consideration of this pathway to pursuing STEM-related studies or careers.
- Encourage a sense of social responsibility through promotion of critical thinking, civic awareness and leadership.
