Welcome to Project GUTS

About Project GUTS
Project GUTS -- Growing Up Thinking Scientifically -- is a summer and after-school science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) program for middle school students based in Santa Fe, New Mexico and serving New Mexico. Growing up thinking scientifically means learning to look at the world and ask questions, develop answers to the questions through scientific inquiry, and design solutions to their problems. Project GUTS is hosted by the Santa Fe Institute and is funded by the National Science Foundation, the Bengier Foundation, the Los Alamos National Bank, Lockheed-Martin Foundation, the New Mexico Public Education Department Math and Science Bureau, New Mexico Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (NM-EPSCoR), the Los Alamos National Laboratory Foundation, and by private donors. Project GUTS was recently awarded the Afterschool Alliance's STEM Impact Award!

NEW! Project GUTS Online Course

Project GUTS CS4HS is providing eight weeks of free online instruction to educators who are interested in embedding computer science within regular school day science classes through the integration of computer modeling and simulation.

The course will begin the week of November 24, 2014 and run eight consecutive weeks, ending on January 16, 2015. Course materials will be posted online at the start of the course to enable teachers to progress through the coursework at their own pace. Weekly webinars and chats will be used to host guest presentations and to conduct live review and reflection sessions.
