Creative Collaboration between Chevron and CSUB: Research Experience Vitalizing Science -- University Program
Wang, Jianjun
Online Submission
Since 2007, Chevron has funded the Research Experience Vitalizing Science -- University Program (REVS-UP), which lasts four weeks each summer to develop Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) projects at CSUB [California State University, Bakersfield]. Over the past six years, a total of 26 STEM professors have led the completion of 113 research projects with the support of 90 CSUB student assistants, 384 high school students, and 84 teachers from K-12 schools. The hands-on research experience has rejuvenated student interest in STEM discoveries and enhanced subject competency for K-12 teachers. In addition, professors received the team support to fulfill their research agendas, and CSUB student assistants gained service-learning experiences. This report concludes with five recommendations to sustain the trend of program enhancement. (Contains 30 footnotes and 23 figures.)
