Come celebrate Minnesota State University Moorhead’s recently awarded National Science Foundation Robert Noyce Scholarship grant of nearly $1.2 million for the project, “Preparing STEM Teachers to Successfully Navigate the Urban to Rural Gradient in Outstate Minnesota.”
We will celebrate with words, food and cool science demos the new five-year award as well as the successful conclusion of the $262,000 NSF Noyce Capacity Building grant, which led to the development of an MSUM Learning Assistant Program and a summer internship program with our public school partners.
Our principal investigators: Alison Wallace (Biosciences), Steve Lindaas (Physics/Astronomy), Timothy Harms (Mathematics), Linda Houts-Smith (History, Languages, Critical Race and Women’s Studies)
