Tagg PIPELINE Project Receives Funding

Randy Tagg, Associate Professor in Physics, calls his latest funded project his "big little grant"—because the impact is potentially far greater than the amount of funding would imply (about $78,000 to CU Denver over three years). The NSF PIPELINE "Promoting Innovation and Physics Entrepreneurship through Institutional Engagement" project will combine the efforts of six institutions — Loyola University Maryland, Rochester Institute of Technology, William and Mary, The George Washington University, the University of Colorado Denver, and Wright State University — to develop and disseminate new curricular and co-curricular approaches to physics innovation and entrepreneurship (PIE) education. This project will also advance understanding of how these practices affect student and faculty attitudes towards innovation and entrepreneurship in physics. Tagg says, "now is a critical time for physics majors themselves to think concretely about the unique value that they can deliver to the world through technical innovation." Off to a good start, students will lead a workshop on physics and innovation for 1000 physics majors from around the country at the Physcon 2016 Conference, in San Francisco, November 4 and 5.
