Investigating Influences in Idaho STEM Education

A Micron-Funded STEM Education Research Initiative

We appreciate the Micron Foundation’s leadership in helping the University and Idaho address critical barriers to learning and involvement in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, which should enhance the state’s ability to help the U.S. reclaim its global competitiveness.”
University of Idaho Former President Duane Nellis.
With the Micron Foundation’s five-year, $1.2 million leadership gift, university researchers will reach out through the institution’s statewide presence to Idaho’s population – citizens, parents, teachers and students – to identify the complex factors that shape STEM interest and learning. Once those complex factors are identified, the University’s research findings will be available to enable partnerships across the state to develop innovations to increase STEM performance and competitiveness.
