Student Participant Information Sheet - SystemsGo Evaluation AY 2021-2022
Congratulations on your participation in your SystemsGo engineering program. Your high school's program is designed to increase students' interest and develop students' workforce skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). SystemsGo is the non-profit organization the provides the curriculum for your program.  

SystemsGo is very interested in the program's effectiveness and in learning how well rocket programs increase student interest in STEM careers. This online, post-course questionnaire is one part of an evaluation of SystemsGo. In an effort to continue to improve the program, we are inviting you to help SystemsGo by answering questions about the program and your career interests.

Procedures:
If you choose to participate in this evaluation, your responses are completely anonymous. The survey should take about 10-15 minutes to complete. You may skip any question you do not want to answer.  That's it.
There are NO names collected, so be an honest and thoughtful as possible. Any written results will focus on all engineering program students. We will not release any information that could be used to identify you.  
Risks:
Because this questionnaire is anonymous, there are no risks to you. We also cannot imagine how any of the questions can cause you any discomfort. Additionally, if you choose not it participate, it will not affect you or your status in the engineering program in any way.
Compensation and Benefits:
There is no reward for taking the survey. However, many consider improving STEM the most important task for American education. Your survey participation will help SystemsGo and your local program in that effort.
Contact:
If you have any questions or concerns about the project contact SystemsGo at 830-997-3567 or info@systemsgo.org.
Again, the survey is voluntary and can be finished fairly quickly. some questions are similar to each other. That is by design - please read carefully. Thank you for your participation!
