The IMPACT LA NSF GK-12 program partners graduate teaching fellows with middle and high school science and math teachers within the East Los Angeles area. The Cal State L.A. graduate fellows serve as visiting scientists or engineers who work closely with their partner teachers to engage middle and high school students in science and engineering activities related to the fellows' research.
The program goals are to enhance STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) curriculum, inform and inspire students about careers in science and engineering, and improve the graduate fellows ability to communicate their research to a broad audience.
The graduate fellows conduct transformative Master's thesis research in the following fields:
Computer Science | Computer/Electrical Engineering | Bioinformatics | Biomedical Engineering
Mechanical Engineering | Civil/Environmental Engineering | Biology | Chemistry | Physics | Math
