The Micron Foundation supports universities all over the world by funding laboratories and research projects for both students and faculty. With a $1.2 million leadership gift from the Micron Foundation, the University of Idaho is launching a new research initiative to learn why some Idaho students may not perform well, or pursue careers, in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and to develop educational programs based upon those findings.
The Micron Foundation is committed to helping our youth see how STEM plays a role in their everyday life and can be part of their future,” said Micron Foundation Executive Director Dee Mooney. “As a co-sponsor of the University of Idaho’s research initiative, we look forward to learning more about the way in which our communities can improve student experiences in STEM education to ultimately increase their success.”
