More than 750 indigenous middle school students from Alaska and Hawaii are engaged in learning about place-based, culturally responsive climate changes of critical interest to their Elders, and about the STEM careers that give back to their communities.
This project will use the Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) Center's highly successful remotely operated vehicle (ROV) competition network to reach, engage, and support the participation of middle schools.
The project uses Mobot (an intelligent modular robotics platform designed for K-12 education) to prepare teachers to engage students with relevant pedagogy that illustrates abstract math concepts with concrete applications using computing and robotics.
Using hybrid-learning environments at North Carolina State University, 120 high school students and teachers discover the wonder of Photonics through investigations and internships on electronics, optics and laser technology.
Fifty K-12 math, science, and technology teachers from tribal and frontier communities in eastern Montana, and over 80 area middle school students have gained hands-on experience using geospatial technologies while discovering dinosaur and other fossils
Twenty-five seventh and eighth grade teachers and 150 of their students in Maine engage in computer modeling, simple programming and analysis of GIS data coupled with hands-on field experiences in ecology.
Seventy five teachers and guidance counselors in the Research Triangle, Piedmont, and Eastern areas of North Carolina are developing Web-based games that will bring biotechnology, genomics, GIS, nanotechnology, and robotics concepts into their
