Education and Outreach Overview:

Through its educational and outreach activities, GEMSEC will train the workforce of tomorrow who will operate at the boundary of biology, physics, chemistry, engineering and materials sciences. These activities will include:

  • Graduate education (Early Bird Award, MRSEC Graduate Award, etc.)
  • Curriculum Development for UG and Grad
  • Research Experience for High School Students (short term, e.g. Materials Camp, and long term, e.g. quarterly projects)
  • K-12 and Minority Outreach focusing on NW Native Americans (teachers and students)
  • Research Experience for Undergraduates, REU
  • Research Experience for Teachers, RET
  • Industrial Outreach and Collaboration
  • Annual Scientific Workshops

A focused GEMSEC outreach mission is to make an impact on increasing the number of Native Americans in science and engineering education via high school teacher and student participation in Center activities REU, RET, and Summer Camp.
