Partner Projects

  • Student Innovation and Engineering Camp Manual (2011) -- Funded through an NSF Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring (PAESMEM) in recognition of CIESE's expertise, encouragement, and mentoring of teachers and students in science and engineering, this summer camp experience held at Stevens introduced middle school students to the Engineering Design Process and iterative design, provided a hands-on approach to identifying problems and developing innovative solutions, and exposed students to career opportunities in engineering.

  • Pulse of the Planet’s Kids’ Science Challenge -- is a nationwide competition for third to sixth graders to submit experiments and problems for real scientists and engineers to solve. It will use an innovative range of new and traditional media -- lesson plans for classrooms, podcasts, virtual communities, after-school activities, online games -- and students can earn fun incentives and win prizes while learning about science.

  • Is Your Bus Exhausting? - - This air quality curriculum is designed to incrementally lead students, Grades 6 – 8, through Internet-based and hands-on learning experiments to discover not only the science behind air quality, but also the health implications related to poor air quality exposure.
  • The Morgan Tutorial -- a web-based hypermedia tutorial which investigates the field of genetics. Developed by the Waksman Institute at Rutgers University.
  • Learning through Collaborative Visualization -- The NIE project supports and promotes this project which brings together students, teachers and researchers to find new ways to think about and practice science in the classroom.
