NIH-Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) of the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) has funded CREATE for STEM Institute at University of Michigan in collaboration with the School of Public Health at University of Michigan and other partners for this five-year project. The project, called Health in Our Hands, is developing and testing new learning materials that blend formal classroom instruction and informal community-based learning to give both students and community members opportunities to apply ideas about gene-environment interactions, natural selection, and evolution to their lives.
The Discipline-Based Educational Research (DBER) Group at CREATE is a gathering of scientists, mathematicians, and engineers who are grounded in their respective STEM disciplines and who have a research interest or focus on investigating and improving education, particularly at the undergraduate level.
Michigan State University is on the forefront of efforts to innovate and improve undergraduate education in the STEM disciplines. The STEM Alliance is composed of the MSU colleges, institutes, and research groups engaged together in an effort to make Michigan State the premier public university
