Students from across Tennessee will be applying for acceptance into  the Governor’s School for Scientific Models and Data Analysis at ETSU in the summer of 2014


We are excited that you are interested in the ETSU Governor’s School: Scientific Models and Data Analysis.The overarching goal of the Governor’s School is to broaden the student’s appreciation and knowledge of biology and mathematics through exposure to and integration of a wide range of contemporary biological and mathematical topics. In each case, model building and data analysis will play a critical role and will be interwoven in a statistical and biological context. Students will be engaged in the scientific method via hands-on research experiences.

Resources from ETSU’s strong undergraduate science and mathematics program, research laboratories, and local schools will be used to accomplish these objectives. In addition, the program will make use of resources from industry, governmental agencies, and academic science establishments. Thus, the school will provide a series of courses, laboratories, research projects, field trips, seminars, lectures, and other activities centered on mathematics, statistics, and biology.

The curriculum will consist of courses BIOL-1110-1111 (4 credits, biological science for majors) and MATH 1530 (3 credits, probability and statistics), which will be taught in the integrated fashion developed through a $1.7 million grant from Howard Hughes Medical Institute.

We are guided by the conviction that today’s students are attracted to science and mathematics when these are seen as interconnected fields rather than as separate bodies of knowledge.  Thus, thirty talented rising juniors/seniors from across the state will be immersed in scientific instruction and inquiry in several interdisciplinary fields of science.  Second, connections between these fields will be seen through the ubiquity of mathematical modeling, data analysis, and the need for high level computation. 

Last but not least, students will gain a healthy respect for many disciplines and thus have a variety of career choices to consider as they get ready to enter college.  In a nutshell, our renaissance style Governor’s School prepares students for many possible career options.

The 2014 Governor's School for Scientific Models and Data Analysis will begin on Sunday, May 25th, 2014 with the opening ceremony and will conclude on Friday, June 27th, 2014 with the closing ceremony and luncheon at the Centre at Millennium Park.
