Summer Research Experience
Posted on July 28, 2021 by USA Engineering
Dr. Na Gong, Warren Nicholson associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, and her team completed a six-week program called Research Experience for Teachers. This is the first summer of a three-year project sponsored by NSF to train middle and high school teachers in engineering and computing related research. The goals of the program include University scientists and engineers building relationships with teachers and administrators at local schools. For South, it offers an opportunity to improve teacher experiences and the recruitment of students to engineering and computing related programs. Research mentors who led the groups are Dr. Gong; Dr. Silas Leavesley, professor of chemical and biomolecular engineering; Dr. Jinhui Wang, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering; and Dr. Jingshan Huang, professor of computer science. Dr. Shenghua Zha, assistant professor of counseling and instructional sciences, led the curriculum development process and conducted educational research on the effectiveness of the program.
