(Aug. 24, 2015) – The University of Kentucky Department of STEM Education, under the direction of Molly Fisher (PI), associate professor and director of graduate studies, and Jennifer Wilhelm (co-PI), professor and chair, is welcoming a new cohort of undergraduate students in the National Science Foundation’s Research Experiences for Undergraduates program.
As an REU site, the STEM Education Department hosts a cohort of undergraduates who work in its research programs.
Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers.
Students are granted stipends and technology funds in order to carry out their research agendas.
