NSF awards $1.8 million to VCL-based project


A recent $1.8 million National Science Foundation (NSF) grant will support a project to help bring advanced mathematics software to rural, underserved high schools in North Carolina through the use of NC State’s Virtual Computing Lab (VCL). Building on work being done by the Friday Institute, the  NSF Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST) grant was awarded to a team of NC State researchers led by Dr. Sarah Stein, associate professor of communication. The team includes Dr. Eric Wiebe and Dr. Karen Hollebrands, associate professors of mathematics, science and technology education; and Dr. Henry Schaffer, coordinator of special IT projects in OIT.
