STEM Fridays are facilitated by CSU undergraduate students studying to become science teachers, mentored by EOC staff and CSU education faculty. The science content has been developed at CSU to give students a real scientific research experience in a real scientific laboratory. All content is tied to Colorado Science Education Standards and is compatible with the Next Generation Science Standards.


Field trips take place on Friday mornings and begin between 10:00 and 10:30 AM and last for ~90 minutes.

Schools are limited to one group of up to 30 students grades 4th through 12th per school year.

The CNS Education & Outreach Center will cover up to $100 of the cost of a school bus that you arrange. An invoice from the school must be submitted to us after the trip for payment.

Please have your students bring their science notebooks.

Cancellations must be received three weeks prior to a scheduled field trip, as CSU undergraduate students are counting on your visit for their education class requirements.
