The lecture will focus on engineering quality academic and social opportunities for urban school students in the face of significant structural barriers including organizational tendencies to treat learning as a discrete set of isolated events. Examples and models will be drawn from mathematics, science, engineering, and technology (METS) research and development. The costs and benefits of success will be highlighted.
