Practical knowledge in STEM will expand a young learner’s opportunities in a world that faces immense challenges in energy, health, environmental protection and national security.
ASU K-12 education projects nurture a student’s natural curiosity through hands-on explorations and experiments, while simultaneously teaching graduate students how to communicate the importance of scientific research to both K-12 pupils and the general public.
Graduate Research Fellowships are funded by Science Foundation Arizona and supported by ASU Graduate Education.
In addition to their research, SFAz Fellows are trained as future citizen-scientists/citizen-engineers who can communicate scientific research to K-12 students, their teachers, families and the general public.
A 3-credit course in how K-12 pupils learn is a requirement of their fellowship. SFAz Graduate Research Fellows collaborate with K-12 teachers to design and implement learning modules for K-12 classrooms.
STEM discovery education includes classes in such diverse topics as microbiology and genetics, bacteria and immune systems, electricity and energy, photosynthesis and nutrients. Students use their newfound knowledge in hands-on projects such as these:
