The Southeast Coalition for Engagement and Exchange in Nanotechnology Education (The SCENE) is an NSF-funded Louis Stokes Regional Center of Excellence.

Southeastern Coalition for Engagement and Exchange in Nanotechnology Education - Louis Stokes Regional Center of Excellence in Broadening Participation

The National Science Foundation (NSF) announced awards for six Louis Stokes Regional Centers of Excellence (LSRCEs) that will support recruitment and retention of minority undergraduate and graduate students studying science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The centers will conduct broadening participation research and STEM implementation activities that lead to degree completion for minority students traditionally underrepresented in the STEM marketplace. The goal is to broadly disseminate successful practices to ensure that students underrepresented in STEM can compete in today's job market.

Norfolk State University (lead institution), Tidewater Community College and Pennsylvania State University and other partner organizations that include the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Langley Research Center (NASA-LaRC), Jefferson National Research Laboratory Applied Research Center (JLab-ARC), and Eastern Virginia Medical School (EVMS) collaborate as part of SCENE-LSRCE - Southeastern Coalition for Engagement and Exchange in Nanotechnology Education Louis Stokes Regional Center of Excellence in Broadening Participation (or The SCENE).

The SCENE serves as a pilot disciplinary institute designed to strengthen skills and knowledge in nanoscience through outreach, informal science, curriculum improvement, and dissemination activities at the K-12 to undergraduate STEM pathways.
