Tuskegee University was well-represented at the recent Emerging Researchers National Conference in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in Washington, D.C. The annual conference seeks to help undergraduate and graduate students enhance their science communication skills and to better understand how to prepare for science careers in a global workforce.
In addition to providing students with professional development that enhances their classroom studies, the conference provides students with a forum to compete in several different poster and oral presentation categories. Winners and participants from Tuskegee in these competitions include:
The annual conference, held Feb. 21-23, was hosted by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), Education and Human Resources Programs (EHR) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) Division of Human Resource Development (HRD), within the Directorate for Education and Human Resources (EHR). The conference is aimed at college and university undergraduate and graduate students who participate in programs funded by the NSF HRD Unit, including underrepresented minorities and persons with disabilities.
At the conference, students also attended sessions and workshops focused on strategies for applying for and succeeding in graduate programs and finding funding for graduate school; career preparation workshops focused on employment searches and retention; understanding STEM careers in a global context; and identifying international research and education opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students and faculty.
