An article, Nurtured from the STEM Up, was featured in the October 13, 2013 International Innovation Magazine. Following is an excerpt .
Ensuring students from all backgrounds are given the opportunity to excel in STEM courses and careers is key to strengthening knowledge in these disciplines. Dr John K Coleman provides an overview of LINC, a multimedia project designed to boost participation and achievement among underserved students and specifically among family, friends and STEM personnel at other institutions. Student researchers and potential summer intern partners can review the kinds of research topics in which our scholars participate, as well as appreciate that they have excelled in their work based upon their record of winning recognition at national competitive events.
