MagLab scientist Bob Goddard talks about his 17 years as a mentor.

Staff from the Center for Integrating Research and Learning represented the MagLab in a booth at USA Science and Engineering Festival held in Washington DC held April 25-27. More than 1,500 visitors stopped by the booth over the three days.

Summertime means new faces and new programs at the MagLab

Two MagLab students recently won prestigious 2014 Graduate Research Fellowships from the National Science Foundation.

Every February, the Magnet Lab invites the public to spend the day at this world-class research laboratory, and every February, they come by the thousands.

Through its educational outreach arm, Center for Integrating Research & Learning, the lab makes significant contributions to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education through quality programming, web content, and research.

More than 80 demonstrations will be simultaneously underway at the MagLab during Open House.

Six teenagers from Leon County public schools spent their Fridays at the MagLab this fall, learning to use high-tech equipment and problem-solve in a world-class laboratory.

This study compared the effects of two Magnet Lab STEM informal education programs on students’ STEM identities (particularly as it relates to interest in STEM and perceptions of STEM professionals/careers). The results indicate that both camps significantly improved girls’ STEM identities.

Five teachers from Leon, Gadsden and Wakulla counties spent their summer as MagLab interns, learning skills related to cutting-edge magnet science.
