Welcome to RESOURCE
The Renewable Energy Systems Opportunity for Unified Research Collaboration and Education (RESOURCE) program leverages our campus commitment to energy research and partnerships with local Math and Engineering Science Achievement (MESA) elementary and middle schools to develop and demonstrate a reproducible model for Graduate/K-12 research and teaching partnerships.
The RESOURCE program provides one- or two-year fellowships to engineering graduate students working toward the development of sustainable, energy efficient renewable energy technologies including solar, wind, and biofuels. Graduate fellows partner with fifth or sixth grade school teachers to create innovative curriculum and educational tools that promote interest in renewable energy technologies and associated Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Fellows and teachers collaborate on communicating STEM subjects to technical and non-technical audiences, leadership, team building, and teaching.
For more information, see the RESOURCE Program Summary.
Funding for RESOURCE is provided by National Science Foundation's GK-12 program.
2010-11 RESOURCE Fellows teach 5th and 6th grade students about energy and renewable energy.
