Project Kaleidoscope, Mobilizing STEM Education for a Sustainable Future, and the Disciplinary Associations Network for Sustainability (DANS) are joining expertise on behalf of students to increase their learning in undergraduate STEM courses, and better prepare them for the real-world 21st century "Big Questions" that relate to real-world issues such as energy, air and water quality, and climate change.

Completed Project
In January 2008, the W.M. Keck Foundation awarded Project Kaleidoscope (PKAL) a grant to implement a three-year project focused on the goal of facilitating interdisciplinary learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) within the undergraduate learning environment. The aim of the project is to advance the efforts of a select group of 28 campuses representing a diversity of program and institution types from across the nation, recognizing the potential of this project to provide easy access to ideas about what works, to materials about lessons learned and adaptable practices, and to assistance for their local efforts to build a curriculum and culture supportive of interdisciplinarity.
