June 8, 2009 --
FORT COLLINS - The National Science Foundation granted Colorado State
University faculty a total of $2.7 million to train graduate students
on technology and how to share their knowledge.
Using the NSF grant, graduate students will learn new theories of cell
behavior using microelectronics and electrochemistry. The research is
led by engineering professor Tom Chen and biomedical sciences professor
Engineering education professor Michael De Miranda will then work with
the students on taking their knowledge to K-12 teachers across the
region. Poudre, Thompson Valley, Greeley and Weld RE-9 are the
participating school districts in Northern Colorado.
The aim of the NSF grant is to expose elementary and high school
students to the possibilities of careers in science, technology,
engineering and mathematics. The program will bring cutting-edge
science into schools and will include industry partners such as
ADInstruments and Avago Technologies.
