Join us for an ABSTRACT PREPARATION WORKSHOP!

Asst. Prof. Jim Prell, who has been a SACNAS abstract reviewer for several years, will hold a special ABSTRACT PREPARATION WORKSHOP at 7 pm on April 11th to assist anyone who wants some help. Email him at jprell@uoregon.edu if you would like to attend the workshop or have any questions about the conference. He will reserve a room in the Science Library and will let you know ASAP where.

Come learn about UNDERGRADUATE SCIENCE RESEARCH opportunities next Wednesday night!

Our next SACNAS Chapter event will be focused on opportunities for undergraduate research here at UO. Our guest speaker Karl Reasoner, Program Manager of The Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP), will be sharing on how to get involved with research in the sciences.

Here are the details:

Where: Price Science Library, B016

When: Wednesday, January 24th  

Time: 7 PM

Hope to see you next Wednesday!

Calling all undergraduate science majors who aspire to be great science teachers!

Oregon needs great K-12 science teachers !

On May 1, 2017, the NSF awarded $1.2M to the UO to build the ESPRIT research and scholarship program that engages UO science majors in careers as innovative science teachers. It starts with students (at any level) attending monthly Innovative Science Teaching Explorations, and then provides stipends ($3,040) to support students undertaking substantive science research experiences. Students who attend monthly Explorations and complete summer research projects are then eligible for scholarships ($32,000) as seniors and graduate students enrolled in the UOTeach program.

 

Want to learn more about these fantastic scholarship opportunities? Join the ESPRIT team for an Exploration of Teaching Science! Details are as follows below.

When: Tuesday, January 23rd, 4-6 PM

Where: Willamette 147

What: Find out how to apply for up to $35,000 in research support & tuition

Why?

Innovative middle and high school teachers inspire broad student participation in science and technology career pathways, thus helping grow Oregon’s technology economy. They model what real science and engineering practices look and feel like in their classrooms. They also help students connect science content, experimentation and broader concepts to issues that are important to them.

For example, students in Bethel School District middle school classrooms build scale model wind turbines, test them, and compete to see who can generate the most renewable electrical power.

We are holding monthly ESPRIT Innovative Science Teaching Explorations, where the ESPRIT pathway begins. If you are interested in undertaking cool science activities, meeting other students like yourself, and talking with dynamic Oregon science teachers, please come to an Exploration. Our next meeting will be January 23rd 4-6 PM in Willamette 147.  See attached slide for schedule.

The University of Oregon’s new NSF Noyce ESPRIT program engages undergraduate science majors in science teaching and research; and financially supports their progress to teacher licensure and service in high need schools. We have over $35,000 in stipends and scholarships to award to each student who follows the ESPRIT pathway into science teaching.

We are holding monthly ESPRIT Innovative Science Teaching Explorations, where the ESPRIT pathway begins. If you are interested in undertaking cool science activities, meeting other students like yourself, and talking with dynamic Oregon science teachers, please come to an Exploration.

We seek your help in scheduling winter term 2018 ESPRIT Innovative Science Teaching Explorations. Please fill out the following Doodle Poll to let us know what days and times work best for you. Thanks!
