NSF Day at Tulane University
January 26, 2007 7:30 AM
January 26, 2007 4:00 PM
Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life
This NSF Day is a one-day workshop providing an introduction to and overview of the National Science Foundation. There will also be presentations on the programs of each of the NSF directorates: Mathematical and Physical Sciences; Biological Sciences; Computer and Information Science and Engineering; Education and Human Resources; Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences; Engineering; and Geosciences, as well as time for participants to chat informally with NSF program managers.
The National Science Foundation is charged with keeping our nation's science and engineering enterprise healthy, dynamic and relevant, and with advancing science, mathematics, engineering and technology education at all levels from pre-K through postdoctoral. It is our hope that events such as this will stimulate new interest in NSF programs at institutions that have not been among our traditional customers, as well as at premier research institutions.
There is no registration fee for this workshop; however, preregistration is required. Please register by January 19, 2007.
The workshop will be held in the The Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life, building #29 on the Tulane campus map.
