LEARN Apprentices

Maya Abdoullahi and Tatiana Hatcher 

Maya and Tatiana are both members of the F-L.E.A.R.N. program at UCF. F-L.E.A.R.N. is a living-learning community (LLC) established at UCF in 2011 that focuses on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) students’ academic success. By working with on-campus partners, L.E.A.R.N. provides a select group of 28 first-year students an inquiry-based/hands-on learning experience through an early research opportunity that is generally reserved for upper-level students. Maya and Tatiana work under the mentorship of our senior graduate student Brittany Stevenson in order to become further involved and knowledgable  in the research process.
