The NSF Graduate STEM Fellows in K-12 Education (GK-12) Program supports fellowships and training for graduate students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Drexel graduate PhD students will be paired with local high school teacher to enhance the math and science education.

The high school students and K-12 Teachers will gain an appreciation for the science and mathematics concepts in an applied, real world context. Concurrently, K-12 Fellows will become knowledgeable in pedagogy through direct application of their technical/scientific expertise in the context of the classroom setting, interaction with the Teacher, and mentoring students. 

The GK-12 program is an institutional grant. Students apply within the college for this opportunity. Please contact Jessica Ward at jward@coe.drexel.edu for more information.
