"Collaboration with a sister network, the Women Engineers Proactive Network (WEPAN), through the Women in STEM Knowledge Center has afforded an AIM Interest Group site as well as access to an extensive, growing, valuable library of STEM Knowledge Center resources."

About AIM

 ADVANCE Implementation Mentors Network

The AIM network currently consists of more than 80 Program Coordinators/Directors (PC/D's) from over 50 NSF ADVANCE funded programs throughout the United States.  Through the AIM network, PC/D's interact with other coordinators and directors via monthly teleconference meetings and through an email contact list which affords on-demand response and support.  
 The AIM Network has fashioned a community of practice in which ADVANCE project leaders have mentored each other in a warm and inclusive environment which has not only nurtured the  development of individual PC/D's but the national ADVANCE effort in general.

ENGAGE presents E3s workshop at NAE & NSF

Pat Campbell and Eann Patterson led workshops at both the NAE and NSF in July 2013 on research-based strategies focused on relating engineering concepts to everyday examples when teaching undergraduate engineering students.  These strategies were developed and successfully implemented to improve the engagement and retention of engineering students as part of the ‘ENGAGE: Engaging Students in Engineering’ project (http://www.engageengineering.org), a project funded by the National Science Foundation.
