Chassapis and team awarded $3 million GK-12 grant from NSF for multiscale research
Date:3/26/2008

orge P. Korfiatis. It is totally appropriate that Stevens be recognized as a leader in these efforts, as we have implemented innovative science, engineering and mathematics curricula in primary and secondary classrooms with great success for several decades.

This is a multi-faceted project, explained Chassapis, which will provide Stevens with a unique and very exciting opportunity. It will combine a significant expansion of our research efforts in the area of multiscale engineered systems with innovative approaches to preparing doctoral students for careers in teaching, while at the same time stimulating wide-reaching transformative changes in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education at the high school and community college levels.

In addition to their doctoral research, the Fellows, devoting ten hours per week during the academic year within a high school setting, will collaborate closely with engineering professors, education professionals, and high school teachers to design, develop, implement and help deliver motivating educational modules that are based on their research work, with the aim of motivating the next generation of students to pursue careers in STEM fields.

The fellows research will address a variety of issues related to multiscale engineered systems, one of the major multidisciplinary research areas identified in Stevens Strategic Positioning Plan. An additional focus on engineering design, innovation and inventiveness will help differentiate this unique doctoral program from competing offerings at other institutions.

By developing and integrating a course on Communicating Engineering and a nine-credit graduate education certificate on Teaching and Learning in STEM Disciplines, this program will further enhance the educational and research experience of the participating fellows, helping to attract highly qualified and motivated candidates to our rapidly growing full-time Ph.D. student population in
