The Discovery Learning Research Center (DLRC) at Discovery Park offered a unique opportunity for graduate students in the STEM disciplines (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) to undertake a one-year fellowship funded by the National Science Foundation and Purdue University. Fellows served as "visiting scientists" in a program designed to instill the excitement of learning science into middle school classrooms. Teamed with 7th and 8th grade science and math teachers, fellows developed lesson plans and taught interdisciplinary-focused experiments geared toward science in everyday life.
Unfortunately, this grant has expired and we will no longer have funding available for fellowships. Please feel free to visit this site to learn more about our accomplishments.
