Project Kaleidscope (PKAL) is an informal, national alliance working to strengthen undergraduate learning in mathematics, engineering, and the various fields of science. PKAL has worked with over 850 colleges and universities since 1989 to build learning environments that best serve 21st century students, science, and society. This informational meeting will provide an overview of PKAL’s programs, and several PKAL-affiliated faculty will be available to answer questions.
