Conduct Real Research Projects with Professor Jenkins
IRISE Research and Discovery Science (IRISE-RDS) is a STEM initiative that partners scientists with K-12 teachers and students to support science and math instructional standards and curricula through custom hands-on, real-world research experiences – research designed to fuel exploratory learning across a wide range of science disciplines, including but not limited to integrated chemistry, mathematics, scientific reading, and writing. IRISE-RDS's main goals and objectives are as follows:
Partner scientists with K-12 teachers and students to conduct hands-on virtual and/or on-location research projects that can be presented at science fairs, professional conferences, or published in academic journals.
Provide STEM affordable, easily assessable, and sustainable research opportunities to teachers, students, and school systems serving under-represented populations.
Expose students to scientific research at an early age
