Adams, Trantham receive grant; Hinger publishes article in Kansas History

Fort Hays State University faculty members Dr. Ken Trantham, associate professor of physics, and Dr. Paul Adams, director of the FHSU Science and Mathematics Education Institute, have received a $5,600 Kansas NASA Space Grant, "Robotics for Western Kansas Schools," to promote robotics in schools in western Kansas. This grant will help fund a teacher workshop in the fall of 2008. Teachers in attendance will each receive a LEGO Mindstorm kit with the understanding that they will participate in the fourth annual FHSU LEGO Robotics Competition for Middle Schools in April 2009.

Kansas History, the state's leading academic journal for historians, published Charlotte Hinger's article " 'The Colored People Hold the Key'; Abram Thompson Hall, Jr.'s Campaign to Organize Graham County" in the spring 2008 issue. Hinger, an instructor of English at FHSU, is a novelist and Western Kansas historian who writes about settlement in Kansas and focuses on African American political and intellectual contributions to the American west. She received her master's degree in history from FHSU in 2005.
