University of Southern California, Los Angeles, California:
CareerFair.ai: Increasing Connections to Fast-Growing STEM Careers will develop and disseminate CareerFair.ai, a web- based portal where students can interact for free with virtual STEM professionals in DoD priority areas. This initiative will enable STEM professionals to author, revise, and publish their own individual virtual agent-mentors, which is an ar- ificial intelligence tool virtually available to students interested in the DoD priority areas. As a result, these virtual-agent mentors will create synergistic relationships among students, university centers, and STEM professionals to increase recruit- ment and retention throughout the Department.
University of Toledo, Toledo, Ohio:
The primary goal of Nurtur- ing STEM in Early Childhood for Military Connected Families (NURTURES) is to transform early childhood science teach- ing based upon DoDEA College and Career Ready Standards for Science to measurably increase student science, literacy, and math achievement through high-impact STEM educational experiences for students and teachers.
Virginia Polytechnic (VT) Institute and State University, Blacksburg, Virginia:
The Introducing Undergradu- ates to Restricted Research ini- iative will expand and refine the Intro to Restricted Research course; increase class size and create an application process for students to participate in this course; and offer the class in both fall and spring semesters so that 200 engineering students can be introduced per year to challenges, research areas, and career opportunities in support of DoD. Additionally, the course materials (course plans, lectures, and videos) will be created and distributed to other universities willing to teach the class at their own schools.
