Faculty Selected for National Science Foundation Early Career Development Program
College of Education & Human Development Assistant Professors Natalie King and Lauren Margulieux have been chosen for the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Faculty Early Career Development Program.
King will receive $1.1 million for a five-year project entitled, “Black Girl Brilliance and STEM Identity Development,” which will allow her to continue her work with students at Coretta Scott King Young Women’s Leadership Academy, an all-girls, STEM-certified middle and high school in Atlanta. She’ll explore how Black girls excel in STEM learning spaces and the factors that may predict whether or not a student declares a STEM major in college.
Margulieux will receive $486,631 for a five-year project entitled, “Spreading Computational Literacy Equitably via Integration of Computing in Preservice Teacher Preparation.” This project will integrate computing coursework into all teacher preparation programs at Georgia State University with the goal of preparing teachers across disciplines to be comfortable incorporating computing-integrated activities in their lessons.
