NSF-IUSE Grant Awarded.
NSF A proposal to the National Science Foundation by Professors Acioli (Physics), Head (Earth Science), Nicholson (Chemistry), Filus (Mathematics), and Sztainberg (Computer Science) to advance the research skills of undergraduate majors in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) at NEIU has been funded. This will be accomplished through the inclusion of hands-on research activities, expansion of computer simulations, and most importantly, through the use of peer mentors to facilitate these activities, in the introductory 200-level courses in Chemistry, Earth Science, Physics, Mathematics, and Computer Science.
