Kent Fellow Completes NOYCE Summer InternshipPosted Aug. 27, 2012
August 27, 2012—Honors student Brandy Grove recently completed the NOYCE summer internship program with the Upward Bound program at Kent State University.
Grove is a second-year student at Kent State University with a major in research physics and was selected to be a part of the Kent Fellows Academy when she entered Kent State University in Fall 2011.
During her four-week internship, Grove worked with high-need students from schools in Canton, Ravenna, and Warren enrolled in the TRiO Upward Bound program, a program designed to increase educational opportunities for first-generation, low-income youth.
Grove was primarily responsible for teaching summer science and math courses and tutoring students. Having graduated from Stow High School, Grove said it was an “eye-opening experience.”
Among her other responsibilities, Grove prepared materials for secondary science and math teachers as part of their professional development.
The NOYCE Summer Internship is offered to outstanding freshman or sophomore undergraduates studying the sciences or mathematics. Students are selected by the College of Education, Health, and Human Services via a competitive application process. Qualified candidates are interviewed by a selection committee, which awards only 10 positions each year.
Grove also serves as a dance instructor in Cleveland, Ohio where she teaches salsa lessons. She was recently selected as a competitor in the Miss Ohio USA pageant, which will be held November 9-10 in Portsmouth, Ohio.
