Research and Instruction in STEM Education

Research and Instruction in STEM Education at UNCG

The RISE Network is a coalition of educators and researchers involved in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education. The network provides access to STEM funding and research opportunities, promotes working partnerships, offers a monthly lunch series, and sponsors special events such as workshops and guest speakers. Network members include UNCG faculty and researchers, community educators, and grant specialists.

The impetus for the network came from a national push to improve STEM education as well as the work of UNCG’s Math-Science Recruitment and Retention Task Force. The task force identified a need at UNCG for better coordination between math and science educators and researchers and increased confidence levels in teaching critical thinking skills and higher levels of math and science. To address these issues and strengthen UNCG’s position in STEM education, the RISE Network was created in 2010.
