This year I applied to the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program. I received an honorable mention in the field of engineering education. The reviewers provided some very positive and supportive comments on my research proposal.
My first peer-reviewed publication will be a poster at this summer’s American Society of Engineering Education Annual conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. The poster covers the content and development of the GE320 kit.
At the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Region H Conference this year I was able to present my dissertation research for the first time. Graduate Student Rapid Fire pretentions comprised one session of the conference and gave five graduate students the opportunity to present their research to a diverse audience and receive feedback. Members of the audience, including professors from Michigan Tech (the host school), SWE Leaders, and other interested volunteers were provided feedback forms to give to the presenters at the end of the session.
