STEM Connections is now entering its third year. Once again, ten UMass graduate students in the sciences have been chosen as NSF GK12 Fellows. They will be working with Springfield area middle school Teacher Scholars enrolled in a masterís degree program at UMass. They'll be working in five teams with environmental themes, each consisting of a UMass faculty participant, two Fellows, and one or two Teacher Scholars, on the implementation of authentic research projects with their school students.

The first two years in the STEM Connections project involved two cycles with 10 GK12 Fellows, up to 15 Teacher Scholars, and UMass faculty participants, and over the two years, nearly 1000 student scientists.
