Research Project: Science Curricula through Education, Development and Outreach Programs

Location: Cotton Ginning Research

Project Number: 3050-41000-009-59-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Apr 1, 2017
End Date: Aug 14, 2019

Objective:
The objective of this cooperative agreement is to develop science education curricula and outreach programs for K-12 students, teachers, and the general public in the southwestern U.S. and Mexico Border region.

Approach:
The Research Units based at the Las Cruces Location have worked closely with the Asombro Institute for Science Education since 1997 to develop science-based education materials and technology transfer programs. During the previous 5-year agreement the Asombro reached over 80,000 students, teachers, and adults in this region (over 16,000 people per year). This agreement will support implementation of new and existing cooperatively developed education and outreach programs.
