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!
