ARDMORE, Okla. — Noble Research Institute and Texas Woman’s University (TWU) will work together to increase education engagement and opportunities for women in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.
TWU recently received a five-year, $2.4 million grant from the National Science Foundation for its project “Partnerships, Research, Innovation, Mentoring and Engagement (TWU-PRIME).”
TWU-PRIME was developed to increase retention and graduation among student populations typically underrepresented in STEM fields, while engaging key partners who will promote career awareness and provide mentorship to women in STEM.
As part of TWU-PRIME, Noble Research Institute will host two TWU students each year, in either the spring or fall semester. The students will work on a research project submitted by a mentor. Noble will host the first students in the fall 2021 semester.
This project aligns with Noble Research Institute’s youth education outreach program, which engages students and teachers in learning about agriculture and science. Specifically, Noble aims to increase the number of students pursuing college degrees and careers in agriculture and/or STEM fields. Noble’s programming aligns with TWU-PRIME in that it focuses on reinforcing concepts in STEM and equipping students with knowledge and experiences to help them become informed, critical thinkers and problem-solvers.
