Education, Outreach & Diversity
iUTAH Education, Outreach, and Diversity (EOD) strived to engage a diverse group of Utah citizens with iUTAH concepts and research. Through a variety of programs and activities, iUTAH EOD partners helped participants explore water sustainability issues, and worked to enhance Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education in the state. iUTAH EOD was committed to promoting and strengthening STEM education in order to build an inclusive and diverse, water-wise, and STEM-literate workforce of tomorrow.
Education and Outreach Programs:
Summer Research Institute
iUTAH’s Summer Research Institute engaged students and teachers from across the state in iUTAH’s water research projects at a single campus for one week each year. Along with learning something new, participants contributed their findings to the bigger picture of water sustainability along the Wasatch Front.
iFellows Undergraduate Program
The iUTAH Undergraduate Research Fellows (iFellows) Program provided an opportunity for undergraduate students from all Utah institutions of higher learning to gain first hand research experience working with researchers associated with the iUTAH project.
