The Kellogg Biological Station, in collaboration with researchers from CREATE for STEM Institute, the Technion Institute, and Gull Lake Community Schools to enrich elementary teachers' experiences in science teaching.
The College of Natural Science, in collaboration with the Create for STEM Institute, is once again making funds available to encourage Departments to invite speakers in their discipline who are experts on research-validated teaching practices to give colloquia on their methods and results. To this end, the college will provide matching funds during the 2014-15 academic year for STEM education colloquium speakers. The CNS Dean’s Office will support 50% of speaker expenses up to a maximum of $500. Departments are responsible for travel arrangements for speakers.
Michigan State University has been awarded $1.5 million from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute to expand efforts for students in science to learn effectively and graduate successfully, especially those who belong to groups underrepresented in science.
