Other collaborating NSF programs on UF campus:




SPICE II is a five-year project funded by the National Science Foundation to train UF graduate students in teaching and to foster inquiry-based learning of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in Gainesville's under-resourced middle schools. It builds upon a similar program (SPICE I) that started in 2003.

Its collaborators come from a disparate set of departments, colleges, centers, and schools at the University of Florida, who are teamed with six middle schools and the Public Schools of Alachua County. Graduate students from UF work in the classroom with middle school teachers to guide students on an exploratory quest about Ecosystem Health.
