We are glad to announce that we will be working with the American Association of the Advancement of Science (AAAS) as the project evaluators on a recently awarded 3-year NSF-funded grant focused on identifying best practices to enhance making and innovation capacity for students and faculty at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) via an inclusive community of practice (CoP).
This project builds upon 3 years of work focused on providing resources, information, and training in the areas of making, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
The project activities include: 1) 2 yearly Making and Innovation Showcases where student teams will develop and present innovations in response to one of the 17 United Nations Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs), and participate in professional development sessions, 2) year-long monthly virtual engagement to resource and support participants, E-mentoring and coaching, and
3) development of a toolkit of making and innovation resources for HBCUs.
Looking forward to working with the AAAS team!
