The Minority Engineering Program (MEP) Summer Bridge Program was held for the incoming underrepresented minority freshman and transfer engineering students at Arizona State University (ASU) during the 1996 summer. The curriculum for the program was delivered by undergraduate engineering students. The curriculum team determined that the students would be teamed to develop a Web page to be presented at the conclusion of the program. After each module, the curriculum team reconvened to discuss progress and to make modifications for the following sessions. At their own initiative, each day, the two dream teams met in a transition meeting to evaluate student progress in the program and to a better plan for the evening's activities.
