Community Programs

In building on and extending our existing programs (such as RET, NSF-GK-12, etc.), we will establish a regional and nationwide outreach program, which will aim to involve the community at large, especially the pool of burgeoning scientists/engineers at high schools (also K-12) and community colleges. The interdisciplinary nature and timeliness of the TIME concept offer great opportunities for developing innovative outreach programs, which will enable the students and their teachers to learn about and participate in the research programs. Of specific interest will be the unique integration into TIME of Temple scholars and faculty from the law and the business schools, addressing specific topics related to IP and commercialization as well as from the humanities, who will address bioethics, philosophy and psychology-related issues such as stem cell research, beginning/end of life, etc.
