We're fueling innovation across the nation with investments that build a diverse next-generation workforce of scientists, engineers, technicians and teachers.
With our support, talented young scientists and engineers have helped devise a sensor that can unlock the potential of exosuits in real-world environments, a model that analyzes how viruses can escape the immune system, and much more. And our research on learning is helping to fuel innovations like AI tutors.
