David Pietrocola, WISE 2010

“I am a Science Assistant (or Science Education Analyst if you’re OPM) working in the Division of Graduate Education in the Directorate for Education and Human Resources at the National
Science Foundation. My main job is to support the IGERT (Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeships) program, which funds projects that bring interdisciplinary research
and education together in a novel way. If I had known about it when I was applying to graduate school, I would have looked for a school that had one. Additionally, I’ll be doing stuff on the side related to STEM education and hopefully some robotics work as it comes.”
