Gwen and Weldon Durrenberger shared fond memories of their college days and because of this love and his deep love for his wife, Gwen, Weldon made a gift of property to Texas State University. Both Weldon and Gwen had exciting careers in the sciences. Weldon wanted to create a lasting memory for Gwen and at the same time assist students who were pursuing a degree in one of the sciences, technology or engineering. This property gift has been developed into the Gwen S. Durrenberger Endowment for Women in Science.
The National Science Foundation held the 2015 Teaching & Learning Video Showcase last week. Brittany Webre, a Math Ph.D. student, took the lead in creating a video for the Dynamic Geometry project. This video was presented at the Showcase that included videos from 112 NSF funded projects and attracted over 22,000 unique visitors from 146 countries.
Today we received the news that our video is a winner of the Public Choice Awards. Only 21videos were recognized, by voting of facilitators’, presenters’ and public choices. You can view those videos at http://resourcecenters2015.videohall.com/posters#/finalists/id=finalists.
Congratulations to our participants and thank you to all those who voted and supported the Dynamic Geometry video.
