Funding has been provided to establish a distinguished science education speaker series, create and fund the position of Science Education Scholar, fund an ongoing research competition for science research programs, establish a science education conference, and advocate for advancement of science education policy, practice, funding, scholarship, and recognition. The first call for research proposals has gone out to the faculty and the first programs should be underway by the time this conference begins.
