This page features panels at SXSW Interactive 2013 that will be presented within the BiT House at the Hilton-Garden Inn.
Additionally - this page includes panels that will take place outside of the BiT House that self-selected BiT as a tag, or have panelists or subject matter that we think is of particular interest to blacks in tech. If you would like to have a panel included on this page, please email the SXSW schedule page url to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This panel will analyze the success of the few STEM (science, technology,
engineering, and mathematics) programs that leveled the achievement gap between
minorities and their peers and question how those results can be expanded to
improve retention rates of all science and math majors.
Why should we care if university students exceed in science, technology,
engineering, and mathematics?
Is the weed-out process really necessary in higher education?
How can corporations and universities form partnerships, change the game, and put
America back in the running to lead the innovation economy?
