We report on professional development and outreach activities led by CREST CREAM scholars at Norfolk State University. These activities included workshops focused on challenges of college and beyond, experimental design and technical writing, strategizing manuscript submission and acceptance, completing the journey: from enrollment, to graduation and full-time employment, necessities for networking, and working in industry. A journal club initiative offered opportunities for high school, undergraduate and graduate students to share and discuss external publications relevant to the Center?s research topics. This imitative generated much interest especially from high school and undergraduate students.
