SRO 2013 Student with GlowstickSummer Research Opportunity

We had a great summer at the Whitaker Center implementing STEM outreach programs!  The Whitaker Center coordinated two Summer Research Opportunity (SRO) programs, for 25 Lee/Charlotte and 26 Collier County middle school students.  The Whitaker Center acknowledges the fantastic contributions of our CAS colleagues, Sue Coticone, Zanna Beharry, Brian Bovard, and Win Everham who worked with the middle school students this summer.  Thank You!


STEM Institute for K-12 Teachers2013 STEM Institute

The Whitaker Center also facilitated two weeks of a STEM Institute for thirty-two K-12 teachers this summer at the Conservancy of SW FL.  We recognize the outstanding contributions of CAS faculty Angela Meyer, and Heather Walsh-Haney along with Susan Cooper of COE and David Webb, FGCU Alumni and Education Director at the Conservancy.  We had a great time demonstrating inquiry-based STEM through water quality, energy, and forensics!
