The Speaking of Science (SoS) program provides students in every type of school—urban and rural, poor and rich, public and private—exposure to the best researchers in Louisiana. The purpose is to increase public awareness of exciting research and development in Louisiana, spark the interest of students in STEM professions and showcase the excellence of Louisiana’s leading faculty and professionals. Speakers are available free of charge to speak to students, educators, and parents throughout Louisiana on a variety of topics.

Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
The LAMDA Extended/Reverse Research Experience for Undergraduates (E/RREU) is a 12-month research program designed for STEM students to conduct research at LAMDA institutions during the fall and spring semesters and work in industrial, national, or academic research R&D groups during the summer. LAMDA research focuses on building the design framework for new complex concentration alloys and thermoset shape memory polymers. Undergraduates receive mentorship from research faculty at participating institutions.
Student participants receive semester and summer stipends, travel reimbursement (summer).
To qualify for the LAMDA E/RREU program, you must be an undergraduate at one of the LAMDA institutions (LSU, LaTech, ULL, SUBR, or Tulane), have a minimum GPA of 3.00, be a U.S. Citizen or Permanent Resident, and consider a research-related career or graduate school in a science major.

Research Experiences for Teachers (RET)
The Louisiana Materials Design Alliance (LAMDA) Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) hosted by Southern University Baton Rouge is a virtual teaching workshop to expose science educators to materials and manufacturing research.
Each teacher will receive an $800 stipend.
The 2021 LAMDA Virtual RET is an online four-day training workshop that focuses on both 3D modeling and 3D printing. Participants will learn how to create 3D models of engineering parts using Solid Edge and print those 3D models using two 3D printing techniques, namely, fused deposition modeling (FDM) and digital light processing (DLP). The workshop will also include the basic demonstrations of both FDM & DLP and their workflow.
- U.S. citizen/permanent resident
- Faculty at a two-year college or high school
- Desire to incorporate workshop information into future course work at home campus
Applications from women and groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM disciplines are encouraged.
Program Dates: July 6th – July 9th
Application Deadline: June 28, 2021
