Welcome to the GK-12 Program at Colorado State University!
This inventive program is designed to train a new generation of scientists in biomedical science and engineering who are inter- and multi-disciplinary in their training, better equipped for multilevel communication across ages (GK-12) and fields(engineering, biology, and chemistry, computer science, mathematics), and finally prepared to take leadership roles for scientific inquiry and progress into the 21st century.
- Research component consists of activities in silicon sensor design, modeling, and understanding how molecules move and the functions of multi-cellular tissues and organ systems in response to external chemical and physical stimuli through intercellular communication.
- Education component involves graduate fellows and doctoral advisors collaborating with K-12 teachers to make new STEM content using engineering approaches accessible to K-12 STEM education.
- Industry partners provide practical experiences for graduate fellows, teachers, and K-12 students.
