BSU / National Science Foundation (NSF) Fellows

The NSF’s GK-12 program supports fellowships for graduate students in the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). GK-12 Fellows improve their communication and teaching skills by working with K-12 students and teachers to enrich STEM content in K-12 educational settings.

Boise State’s GK-12 project focuses on using local and regional science issues to stimulate learning in the K-12 community. Graduate GK-12 Fellows from the Departments of Biology and Geosciences will partner with the Foothills Learning Center and the Boise WaterShed Environmental Education Center to develop and deliver educational activities. K-12 classes that visit the learning centers will use some of the developed activities, while other activities will be used in traditional classroom settings through outreach.

BEE has been part of this exciting grant for a few years. Our past fellows have enhanced our programs and inspired countless students with their enthusiasm and expertise. Meet this year's fellows:
