PHEONX recruits talented college students from prestigious universities across New England to discuss their experiences within specific majors to high school students. Those who participate in this program get a first-hand look at what is will be like as a student in a specific major in college.
College students will bring experiments, tutorials, and a wealth of valuable information to each classroom. The goal of this program is to provide high school students with the information they will need to declare a major or area of interest during their college application process.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, in 2016, 20 million students enrolled in colleges and universities across the nation. By graduation, 16 million - 80 percent - will change their major. This leads to mental, emotional, and financial distress, on top of delayed graduation times and incurring the opportunity cost of entering the workforce later.
PHEONX is designed to address this problem and better prepare students to make an informed decision about their future.
