Partnership for the Education and Advancement of Quantum-and nano-Systems (PEAQS)

Building Center Community
PEAQS is a partnership between Fort Lewis College, Norfolk State University, and the NSF Science and Technology Center, STROBE. Woven throughout PEAQS are highly collaborative materials science research and education projects requiring a strong center community and confident, empowered undergraduate researchers. In the first 9 months of PEAQS, an emphasis was made to strengthen the PEAQS community and empower our undergraduate researchers through:

  • 6 cross institutional exchanges across all PEAQS nodes, involving >17 faculty, staff, and students leading to numerous collaborative projects
  • Week long research experience at CU Boulder for two FLC undergraduate researchers
  • Numerous oral and poster presentations given by PEAQS undergraduate researchers
  • Peer network building at all institutions through active student groups
