Advancing STEM Education
Tuesday, December 15, 2009--National Science Foundation-- Seven institutions received funding in fiscal year 2009 through Innovation through Institutional Integration, or I3-an effort intended to link institutions' existing National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded projects in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education and to leverage their collective strengths. Awards were for up to $1.25 million over four years.
As a cross-divisional activity in NSF's Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR), I3 promotes increased collaboration within and between institutions. It also addresses important directorate initiatives: broader participation of underrepresented minorities in STEM, critical educational junctures, the integration of research and education, a globally engaged workforce and research and evaluation.
