The National Center for Science & Civic Engagement is awarding fifteen SENCER Summer Institute 2015 Post-Institute Implementation Awards that promote education reform at the course, campus, and regional level, connect STEM to humanities disciplines such as music, literacy, and the classics, and engage students in content and the community. The awards sponsor projects that bridge the gaps between disciplines, restructure and revitalize standard laboratory courses, and extend the SENCER Ideals to K-12 educators and pre-service teachers. Project themes include sustainability, geosciences, public health, systems thinking, and media outreach. We are also pleased to note that this year's awarded projects are all led by women, a traditionally underrepresented population among STEM educators and professionals.
