About this event
This NSF Day is a one-day workshop providing an introduction to and overview of the National Science Foundation. Additionally, there will be presentations on the programs of each of the NSF directorates: Mathematical and Physical Sciences; Biological Sciences; Computer & Information Science & Engineering; Education and Human Resources; Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences; Engineering; and Geosciences. There will also be time for participants to chat informally with NSF program managers.
The National Science Foundation is charged with keeping our nation's science and engineering enterprise healthy, dynamic, and relevant and with advancing science, mathematics, engineering, and technology education at all levels from pre-K through postdoctoral. It is our hope that events such as this will stimulate new interest in NSF programs at institutions that have not been among our traditional customers, as well as at premier research institutions.
There is a registration fee of $10.00 for this workshop payable at the door. Pre-registration, however, is required. Please register by September 8, 2006.
The workshop will be held in the University Center on the UNC campus. Parking will be available in the parking lot immediately south of the University Center.
