About Us

The Partnership for the Education and Advancement of Quantum and nano-Systems (PEAQS) is an NSF PREM (Partnership in Research and Education in Materials) center led by Fort Lewis College. PEAQS brings together communities from Fort Lewis College, Norfolk State University, and STROBE, an NSF Science and Technology Center, to engage undergraduate students in integrated, long-term material science research and educational activities. PEAQS creates opportunities for underrepresented students in STEM to engage in cutting-edge material science that explores the multi-scale interplay of atomic and meso-scale structure and emergent physical phenomena. PEAQS creates pathways for students within an inclusive and supportive community with research faculty, graduate student and postdoc mentors, guided research experiences in materials science, professional development activities, and peer support networks to promote exciting possibilities of STEM careers.
