  • The Mississippi EPSCoR project is bringing its popular Creative Science Through Inquiry (CSI: MS) science teacher workshop to Louisiana. For two weeks, teachers get to be students again as they solve a number of crimes designed to teach fundamental science principles in an engaging and effective way. The workshop is aligned with the Louisiana Academic Science Standards and Grade Level Expectations and will incorporate Biology, Chemistry, Physical Science, Physics, Math, Technology, Writing, and so much more. For more information, visit https://www.msepscor.org/events/2017/03/csi-ms-louisiana-teacher-workshop/#. An online application can be found at https://www.tfaforms.com/4604032.
  • The National Science Foundation will fund two (2) community college instructors to work with faculty researchers at the University of Alabama, the University of Mississippi, Mississippi State University, or Tulane University. Researchers will gain hands-on experience in a collaborative atmosphere with a broad range of topics such as laser-based molecular spectroscopy, computational chemistry as well as the synthesis and characterization of new nanomaterials.   Participants will receive a $4,500 stipend and $1,500 travel and meal allowance.   To fill out an application, go to: https://www.tfaforms.com/403446    This program is part of the MS EPSCoR Feeding and Powering the World project funded by the National Science Foundation.
