AAAS News Release


Graduate Fellows from Rensselaer are partnering with teachers to bring the excitement of science and engineering to high school classrooms.


The overarching theme of our GK-12 project is energy and the environment. We are "Building Bridges from High School to Graduate School through Discovery-based Activities in Energy and the Environment." With an emphasis on these activities, we have dubbed our project the DAEE Program. We are working on a broad range of topics including: 

  • solar power
  • wind energy
  • fuel cells
  • nanomaterials
  • air and water quality
  • and many others

Our graduate fellows are working in high school classrooms:

  • leading activities
  • making presentations
  • and mentoring students

In the summer, high school teachers will join their graduate fellows in research projects at Rensselaer.
