The Project SEED Program has hosted 77 high-school students since 2010. Most of these SEED students have completed, are pursuing, or are planning to pursue a college degree in STEM..
The Project SEED National Office generated report cards for Project SEED Sites using data from the Annual Student Survey and the Mentor Report. These report cards are automatically generated from data and do not reflect a grade, but rather a visualization of student/mentor responses. Each report card is automatically generated using the data given and a visualization software. Any irregularities or questions can be addressed with the Project SEED National Office.
