Registration is open for Nebraska’s third-annual Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education Research Retreat is from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Oct. 17 in Hardin Hall.

This retreat is intended for all faculty, staff, students and postdoctoral research assistants who are conducting science, technology, engineering or mathematics education research on campus.

The goal of this retreat is to provide an avenue for members of the STEM education research community to learn about one another’s projects and develop research collaborations.

The retreat consists of three main events:

  • Knowledge sharing: An interactive poster session will provide an opportunity for participants to showcase their teaching, extension, and/or research programs designed to foster science or STEM literacy.

  • Network building: K-12 representatives will provide a talk on problems of practice and identify potential collaborations with the university STEM education research community.

  • Federal funding: Principal investigators of federally funded STEM education projects will answer questions from retreat participants about funding programs during roundtable discussions.

The Institutional Review Board office will provide an optional one-hour training on the changes to the Common Rule and its implications for STEM education researchers.

Attendees will share research projects and develop a research network.

The deadline to register or present a poster is Oct 6. For more information about the retreat and to register, click here, or contact Marilyn Stains at
