Shodor Workshop Schedule


Shodor is a non profit organization and a national resource for computational science education based in Durham, NC, serving students and educators nationwide. Its mission is improving math and science education through the use of computational science (scientific computing) - modeling and simulation technologies. Locally, Shodor offers programs - workshops, apprenticeships and internships- for youth and teens to build excitement for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) through interactive explorations using hands-on and computer-enhanced activities, giving them the experience they will need to pursue a technology- intensive career path.

Shodor is located in downtown Durham, in the Golden Belt complex. Location & direction information can be found here

The Math Mentoring Program is funded by Dr. Steve Shafroth, North Carolina Central University, GlaxoSmithKline Inc., Amgen Foundation, and Texas Instruments, Inc, supported by Durham Public Schools, and administered in conjunction with the North Carolina Chapter of the Women And Mathematics Network.
