Noyce program researchers Meena Balgopal, Laura Sample McMeeking, DeeDee Wright and Andrea Weinberg

Laura Sample McMeeking, Director of the STEM Center, is part of a team of researchers, led by Meena Balgopal (Associate Professor, Biology) to study how novice STEM teachers are responding to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Additional support was provided by the National Science Foundation (NSF) on a current NSF grant aimed at preparing science and math majors to become teachers in high-needs school districts, through CSU’s Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program. The researchers involved with the Noyce program are now studying a crop of novice teachers just entering the teaching profession, as COVID is still dictating how schools will operate come fall.
