The Alliance for the Advancement of Florida’s Academic Women in Chemistry and Engineering (AAFAWCE) has been granted the NSF ADVANCE-PAID award to provide collaborating universities with the mechanisms necessary to support the advancement of women in the professoriate in chemistry and engineering.
This brochure gives an overview of NSF's ADVANCE program.
In February 2007, Global Educational Outreach for Science Engineering and Technology (GEOSET) was established by the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Florida State University to develop new and effective ways to broadcast a range of educational material (not only science) to schools via the Internet. This page provides links to online videos created through the GEOSET program.
AAFACWE's Library includes articles, reports, and books relevant to the advancement and promotion of women in science and engineering.
