 Math & Science Graduate Fellows in K-12 Education

The goal of the National Science Foundation Graduate Fellows in K-12 Education (GK-12) Program was to educate, train and interest science and mathematics graduate students to become better teachers and communicators of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) with K-12 teachers, students, and the public.

From 2007-2012, graduate fellows worked with University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) faculty, staff and K-12 classroom teachers and students in area schools to define the needs and challenges for improving STEM teaching in K-12 classrooms, created a variety of innovative, inquiry-based STEM lesson plans and activities that took advantage of the expertise and interests of the graduate fellows and investigated educational topics through action research projects.

UMD's GK-12 program partnered with the departments of Geological Sciences, Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Mathematics and Education. To read more about this project, please explore the links to the left.
