Math & Science Graduate Fellows in K-12 Education

2008 - 2009 Fellow Teacher Teams

In our second year of the Graduate Fellows in K-12 Education program, our fellows are involved in a wide variety of classroom and special projects, each building on their strengths. Some have developed lots of lesson plans, some have brought thier research into the classroom with weekly updates on what they are doing and how thier research is going.

Here, three of our fellows are inspecting UMD's new scanning electron microscope. They include Shelby Frost (Geology 2009-10 fellow), Greg Rohde (far right, Chemistry 2008-09 fellow) and Dan Costello (front, Geology 2008-09 fellow).

Below you will find links to short summaries of each fellow-teacher team. Take a look, we are very proud of their achievements. All lesson plans, content and images provided here are free to use for strictly educational purposes.

In addition to their classroom work, several of our fellows have worked on special projects, to see a summary of those efforts, Click Here!
