The NHERI Summer Institute will be held on July 24-28, 2017 at University of Texas in San Antonio (UTSA) for K-12 educators, engineers, and researchers who want to learn more about the Natural Hazards Engineering Research (NHERI) community. Participants will learn about:

  • The mission of the NHERI program
  • Writing a grant proposal through grant writing & design workshops
  • Requesting research resources within the NHERI network
  • The NHERI Science Plan
  • Computational research and data management through hands-on participation

All participants—early career professionals and faculty, K-12 educators and administrators, and established professionals and faculty—are welcome to attend.

Preliminary schedule of events:

  • Day 1: Proposal and grant writing workshops
    •   Assessments and evaluation
  • Day 2: NHERI Science Plan
    •   Computational research and data management sites
    •   Networking event
  • Day 3: Experimental research sites
  • Day 4: Applications and experimentation using NHERI equipment and data
  • Day 5: Educational and community outreach design

The grant covers travel expenses for a limited number of early career faculty members (i.e., non-tenured professors) and early career professionals. Local K-12 educators will also receive a stipend for participating. Unfortunately, the NHERI Summer Institute cannot sponsor international travel assistance at this time.
