The Natural Sciences are relevant to everyone.
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) subjects are not always presented in a way that captures imaginations and inspires students to pursue STEM careers, particularly for female and minority students.
We harness the intellect of the College of Natural Sciences faculty to solve these problems. In addition to teaching, our faculty are conducting fundamental and applied research relevant to the needs of society. We collaborate with these faculty to translate their top research into unique STEM experiences for 4th – 12th grade students to inspire the next generation to want to learn more about the sciences. Our programs have reached students and educators at all levels, local to global.
Every week we meet new undergraduate students, graduate students, post-docs, faculty, and community members interested in STEM outreach. Their passion helps energize us as we work towards making science more accessible to everyone.
