Ten members of the Notre Dame extended Research Community are heading to DC this weekend for the GK-12 annual meeting. These meetings are extraordinarily rich times for reviewing what others are doing in university/K-12 relations across the country. This year’s event will be marked by some controversy, since the NSF has announced that GK-12 will be phased out, with no new programs being accepted. This year’s NDeRC contingent–two university faculty, two K-12 teachers, and six graduate students–will be looking for ways to add value to our integrated STEM community here in Michiana, and will share with other GK-12 programs some of what we’ve been busy doing here. Embedded above are slides from last year’s trip. Watch for reports next week!
