Technical Writing: Clarity and Concision
Seeking first-generation rising college freshmen (also accepting rising sophomores) who are going to West Virginia schools and majoring in STEM!
First2 is a National Science Foundation funded project aimed at improving the persistence of science, engineering and math majors during their first two critical years of post-secondary education. We are targeting first generation rural students for this pilot project. Students selected for our project will participate in a STEM research experience early in their post-secondary path, gain the support of successful peer mentor students who have navigated the obstacles of college life and being a STEM major, and pay it forward by helping to solve the STEM persistence problem for themselves and future students.
A new course, From Innovation to Industry (CHEM 493B, CRN 87407), is being offered for students interested in taking scientific discovery through development toward new business generation.
