The Dr. McNair Club Program

The Dr. McNair Club is a 6 to 12-month “STEM-Mentor” program designed to provide interested McNair HS students and beyond -- from low-income, traditionally disadvantaged backgrounds typically underrepresented in STEM majors -- supplementary training ​to strengthen their reading and math skills. In addition to this, enable them to further demonstrate scientific rigor, develop confidence, and pursue their interest in STEM fields -- especially in physics, aeronautical, and agricultural science. The program typically takes place after school. The McNair Club was inspired by the life of Dr. Ronald McNair, PhD and ​The McNair Scholars Program​.
