The Principal Investigator, Kim S. Nguyen and her collaborators - Kathy Marrs, Signe Kastberg and John Staver, received a two year award (DUE 1002638) from the National Science Foundation, Division of Undergraduate Education to organize the Midwest Noyce Regional Conferences for 2010, 2011 and 2012 that were held on the campus of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI). Conference participants were representatives of the 48 active Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship awards in 15 states of the Midwest (AR, IA, ID, IL, IN, KS, KY, MI, MN, MO, ND, OH, SD, WI, WV). The main objectives of the Midwest Noyce Regional Conferences at IUPUI were to: 1) Create a means for professional networking between Midwestern Noyce Scholars, Noyce Principal Investigators, and other STEM educators throughout the Midwest. 2) Facilitate professional discussions on program effectiveness in the management of the Noyce Teacher Scholarship projects at institutions in the Midwest. 3) Present best practices in teaching and learning of mathematics and science subjects at K-12 high-need schools and to support scholarly dissemination about STEM education to the project faculty, Noyce Scholars and the general public.
