STEMCats, sponsored by HHMI, is designed to help students succeed at UK. The program prepares students both academically and socially through participation in FastTrack or FOCUS, research opportunities, and special seminar courses. Students participating in STEMCats will build confidence, enthusiasm, satisfaction and a sense of belonging to UK, and experience a smoother transition to college coursework. This leads to improved performance and higher academic achievement.
The Mathskeller is located in CB63, which is next to the loading dock in the basement of White Hall Classroom Building. Open 9AM-5PM, Monday through Friday, Mathskeller is a place for any UK student to come get free tutoring, no appointment necessary. Tutors are available for students in 100-level math courses, and have excellent knowledge of math, since they are math graduate students, professors, and math majors at University of Kentucky. Many of the math Professors for 100 level classes at UK even hold their office hours in the Mathskeller.
In the fall of 2014, a group of 235 incoming students became the first class of STEMCats at the University of Kentucky. This week, they are not only wrapping up their first year at UK
