    We are excited to announce sullivlo as the newest member of our new Student Outreach Initiative team. She is developing her expertise in the teaching of science, and will be a valuable contribution to the Researcher forum and student outreach.

    Beginning 1 March 2017 we began to roll-out our new Student Outreach Initiative in the Science, Research & Environment category. We wish to encourage new student memberships by welcoming student surveys, homework, projects, and degree-related research in all our 35 forums, and hope that after we have helped these students, they may want to stay and become contributing members to our science category and the boards.ie site.

    If a student does not know where to place his/her first post, they can start by placing it in this Researcher forum, and we will find it a home. Or if one of the 500 mods on the boards.ie site want to move a post from their forum to our science category, and don't know where to place it, they too can move it to this Researcher forum, which will act as a clearinghouse for the science category.

    Our new mod sullivlo will help us not only with the roll-out of our new Student Outreach Initiative, and also its clearinghouse function, but may also help guide students towards solving the science questions that students may have, and may do so here in our Researcher forum (and not move the student post), or may move the post to one of our other science forums, while at the same time helping the student solve their problems in the destination forum.

    Fortunately sullivlo begins this quest to attract and retain students to science at the beginning, when there is just a little trickle of such OPs and posts. Later, if the Student Outreach Initiative succeeds, so should the challenges of maintaining the growth and development. If not, then "nothing ventured, nothing gained."

    You should tie in with universities, IT's etc and set up accounts using the students id number as their username. They'd receive this on a boards phamplet detailing the assistance your initiative offers with their usual induction pack. Then offer a free name change on their first log on.








    Congrats Sulli.
