DID YOU KNOW?

Engineering Professor Dr. Herb Schroeder (PAESMEM 2004) wants to use the Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program (ANSEP) he founded to change education in Alaska. ANSEP, which begins their program with sixth graders, aims to reduce the cost and time it takes students to get a degree, particularly for native Alaskans who comprise only six percent of Alaska’s science and engineering workers.

Beth Holloway (PAESMEM Organization 1997), director of Purdue University’s Women in Engineering Program, has helped pilot an app (Pattern) to be used as a learning analytics tool at the school. The app allows students to self-track their scholarly pursuits and rate their productivity. It also tells students when to study and recommends ways students can be more efficient with their time.
