STEM Education Research Symposium

In-Depth Research. Real-World Experience.

Students in our graduate-level STEM programs gain invaluable skills that create recognized leaders in science-based education. Through an emphasis on research, grad students gain the experience they need to make a real impact in the world around them.

By providing a closely connected community of support and mentoring, program participants are uniquely equipped to succeed both academically and in research, positively influencing their future practice. We incorporate a variety of funded projects, scholarships and awards that allow students to undertake a wide breadth of research projects. Researchers are able to present their findings in academic settings and publish results with world-class scholars.
