National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. Directorate for Education and Human Resources.
The conference served as a platform for presenting and discussing the National Science Foundation (NSF) action plan to increase the participation of minorities in the scientific and technological workforce. A broad group of issues related to conference objectives was discussed in a national videoconference. More than 300 students from elementary to graduate school who participated in NSF-sponsored research activities presented their research in panel and poster sessions (abstracts of all student presentations are available in a separate document). This report includes speeches by national leaders in the field of science and technology education and the award presentations. Included are a transcript of the national videoconference discussion; remarks from the forums and workshops (including the forum on undergraduate education, student forum, and directorate workshops on education activities); and the award-winning research papers in the precollege, undergraduate, and graduate categories. The appendices contain the conference program, a list of conference attendees, and a list of exhibitors. (LZ)
