Grant-Funded Projects

National Science Foundation: Advancing Design-related Technological Education: A Three-way Partnership (TECH-FIT)

FIT was awarded a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant focused on design-related technology education, and the infusion of sustainability into science courses at the college. The co-directors of the grant are Karen Pearson, Associate Professor, Science and Math, and Elaine Maldonado, Director of Faculty Development/ Center for Excellence in Teaching. The grant was awarded to the college in June 2010.

This $150,000 project will develop green/sustainability modules for introductory science classes. Modules will be cooperatively developed with high school and industry in order to pave a more seamless pathway from high school to college to the workplace. Design-related technical fields such as interior design, packaging and textile development will be included. A new faculty development model, designed to support new curricular efforts and eco-education will be implemented.

A launch of the project took place on August 25, 2010 and the goals of the project are expected to be completed by 2012.
