• SMILE PROGRAMThe mission of SMILE (Science and Math Investigative Learning Experiences) is to inspire and prepare mintority, low-income, historically under-represented and other educationally underserved students from rural areas to graduate from high school, enroll and succeed in higher education, and pursue STEM careers.   Thus, in August 2015, Stephen Giovannoni, postdoc Jing Sun, and graduate student Omran Muslin, offered the first of a series of new workshops for high school teachers from around Oregon.  Their program is entitled:  Carbon Cycling by Marine Microorganisms, and was created as a new teacher professional development component for OSU's SMILE program.
