The SENCER Center of Innovation - South is soliciting short papers, posters, and workshops for presentation at its Fall 2015 Regional Meeting (October 15-16) at UNC Asheville. Our theme isImproving the STEM Pipeline: an intentionally inclusive theme, embracing SENCER-style STEM education for the college science major; the non-major; and the scientist to be, our K-12 students. Submissions should present projects or curriculum design aimed at expanding student interest in STEM learning, through an exploration of the connection between science and its civic or social impact. Our particular interest is to facilitate our colleagues’ creativity and exploration of such projects on their own campuses, through encounters with your model and experiences, particularly through the lessons you have learned in doing this important work.
Our primary interest is to disseminate such projects to other campuses, which will be facilitated by our exploration and encounters with your model coupled with the lessons you learned through experience while doing this important work.
