2015 Poster Session

Developing research collaborations

The most recent STEM Education Research Retreat was held in Fall 2016, from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Hardin Hall on the UNL East Campus. This event is intended for all faculty, staff, postdoctoral research assistants, and students (graduate and undergraduate) who are conducting Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Education (STEM) Research on the UNL campus.

The goal of this retreat is to provide an interactive poster session, allowing an opportunity for participants to showcase their teaching, extension, and/or research programs designed to foster science or STEM literacy. Presenters will be asked to provide a brief 1-2 minute overview of their work during lunch and contribute a poster through which to communicate and engage with other attendees as part of the session. More details regarding the poster requirements are on the registration form. Tweet about your research using #unlSTEMed.
