Wesley’s Associate Professor of Environmental Studies Stephanie Stotts received a 2018 Delaware Bioscience Center Applied Research Collaboration grant for $46,230.

The grant will foster student understanding and appreciation of the scientific method in the college’s liberal arts core in collaboration with Delaware’s ANP Technologies.

With the assistance from ANP Technologies and the Wesley College STEM faculty, Katelyn Fry, an environmental science graduate student, will transform the ANP Technologies NIDS ACE Rapid Pesticide Test into an education module. A pilot program using these modules will then be launched in Wesley’s Frontiers of Science, and Applied Math Concepts core-curriculum courses.

ANP Technologies is a Delaware company that manufactures and produces products relating to defense, diagnostics, therapeutics, food safety and environmental monitoring. The redesign of the Wesley College core-curriculum was supported in part, by Delaware’s EPSCoR and INBRE programs.
