A Moment From A Grad Student
Do you have an awesome undergraduate student interested in learning and teaching STEM? Encourage them to apply for our Discipline-Based Education Research (DBER) REU program @NDSU! #REU #NSF #DBER https://www.ndsu.edu/dber/reu_program/
Our REU participants work in a learning community of undergraduate scholars over 10 weeks during the summer. They are immersed in hands-on research experiences in discipline-based education research, housed on-campus, and earn a $6000 stipend #NSF #DBER
Of particular interest, Alex and Emily (Hackerson) are mentoring on 2 projects! Project descriptions linked here!
We will be taking off January to enjoy the winter break and return in February. Our next discussion will center around some of the host's experiences as sexual minorities in graduate school.
