Research Institute

Each year of the program, a competitive application process will allow 20 regional middle and high school teachers to participate in a two-week summer research institute to enhance their understanding of both science and the scientific method. These Dow Corning Foundation Fellows will work with SVSU faculty to identify a relevant STEM-based project, funded through the program, that will enhance student interest and knowledge through inquiry-based learning and a related community service-learning project. Additionally, SVSU students majoring in STEM and education will visit and assist students with classroom projects during the academic year.

Annually in May, SVSU will host a symposium where students will showcase their inquiry-based learning and community service projects. It is anticipated that the celebratory event will draw students, parents, teachers, administrators, community members, SVSU staff, students and faculty, and Dow Corning representatives.
