Expansive STEM Education: The edges of our disciplines meet the edges of our social possibilities

Dr. Carrie Tzou, in partnership with Northwestern University, submitted a proposal to the National Science Foundation’s Innovations in Undergraduate and STEM Education program.  This project titled “Improving the STEM preparation of K-5 preservice teachers through a project-based, interdisciplinary approach” aims to design a two-quarter science content course sequence for preservice teachers that will be a prerequisite for entry into UWB SES’s elementary certification program. This four-year project was awarded $1,881,288 and began October 1, 2021.
