    We are excited to invite you to the spring 2017 Regional Meeting of the SENCER Center of Innovation South with the theme of Developing Professionals, at Lipscomb University. SENCER SCI-South hopes you will join us to learn about regional innovative research in STEM Education. Topics include undergraduate STEM education for majors and non-majors, assessment of teaching and learning, informal science education, as well as pre-kindergarten through 12th grade STEM education. 

    The SENCER Center of Innovation - South is also soliciting short papers and posters for 20 minute presentations at its Spring 2017 Regional Meeting. Our theme, Developing Professionals, is intentionally inclusive - embracing SENCER-style STEM education for college science majors; 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.

    We have heard that many of our colleagues are planning to take part in the March for Science in Washington, DC on April 22 or one of the many satellite marches planned around the world to support evidence-based decision making and to safeguard the practice of science for future generations.

    If you are planning to be in DC for the March on April 22 and are interested in walking with colleagues from this community, please let us know! Members of the NCSCE DC staff will be marching to support these efforts and we are happy to see all of you who plan to be in town on April 22. We'll set a location to meet once the route is announced, and we can provide tips to help you navigate local public transportation if you are traveling here from out of town.

    If you would like to connect with us in DC on April 22, please complete this form. We will only send emails and information about the March to people who complete the form.

    Please note, you must be at least 18 years old (or the age of majority in your state) to complete this form.

    • Stony Brook University

    This symposium, with support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, will bring together a cross-disciplinary group of scholars, researchers, funders, and practitioners to explore the historical, ethical, civic, and cultural implications of the expanding technological phenomenon of “big data.” Its goal is to identify significant issues, approaches, resources and formats for public humanities programming that would engage audiences in understanding and investigating this topic.

    The symposium will begin in late afternoon on May 4 and conclude with an evening reception on May 5. Most events will occur at the Institute for Advanced Computational Science on Stony Brook’s campus. The National Center will reimburse travel and provide meals and hotel accommodation for two nights, plus a modest honorarium to each participant. We envision a lively and productive meeting.
