By on January 20, 2017 in WNDB News


Daytona Beach,FL – Bethune-Cookman University is a part of a coalition that was recently awarded a $479,762 grant by the National Science Foundation. The coalition will be focusing on “big data,” which is large sets of computational and observational data. This data is becoming prevalent in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields (STEM).

The project will spend 3 years focusing on developing courses in biology and earth science.  Adams State University, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, and Hampden-Sydney College are partnering with B-CU.  If this research project is proven to be successful after three years, it will spread to more universities after 2020.
