CSUEB graduate students showcase research

Seven Cal State East Bay graduate students presented research they conducted this summer alongside scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory during an Aug. 9 poster session at the lab.

Graduate students who showcased their research participated in an eight-week teacher development program designed to help middle and high school teachers, as well as students preparing to become teachers, develop and maintain mastery in their scientific fields.

Teacher education students Jonathan Fuller, Hana Seidler, Laura Larson Brodman, Ann Nguyen and Allison Richins presented research on topics ranging from “Agent Based Modeling as an Educational Tool” to “Measuring Ecosystem CO2 Emission Sources in a Northern Hardwood Forest.”

CSUEB had the largest representation from a college or university at the poster session. Six of the students who presented their work are recent graduates from the Single Subject Science Credential Program and many have secured teaching positions at Bay Area high schools beginning in the fall.

“(The) event epitomized the talent, energy and great students of CSUEB,” said Valerie Helgren-Lempesis, Department of Teacher Education graduate programs coordinator.
