NSF Grantees Poster Session
This poster presentation focuses on the description of our project recently funded by the NSF S-STEM program. The project provides S-STEM scholarship support for academically-talented, financially-needy undergraduate students in two engineering departments at our university: the Department of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering (MAE) and the Department of Civil & Environment Engineering (CEE). Described are several representative project activities, including six professional development seminars for S-STEM students, student design competition, and an S-STEM teaching seminar. The assessment results show that professional development seminars and student design competition motivate students to learn, and learn how to learn. The teaching seminar motivate instructors to think more about their own teaching and adopt active learning methods in the classroom.
