Science, Technology, Engineering, Math (STEM) Outreach Program delivers on-campus interaction designed to increase science, technology, engineering and mathematics literacy and enthusiasm among P-8 students, their families, and educators. The interaction grabs students’ attention with exciting demonstrations while introducing them to the wonders of our world and confronting their stereotypes of the scientists who explore these wonders. The program addresses concepts in an age appropriate manner and helps students to master California Learning Standards. To encourage interaction between students and presenters, group sizes are kept small.

STEM Outreach has three purposes:

  1. Build interest and excitement about STEM through standards-based presentations at schools.
  2. Raise education aspirations, knowledge of STEM, and interest in attending higher education by coordinating activities such as structured campus visits, special events, and camps.
  3. Improve teaching of STEM subjects by collaborating with teacher preparation and professional development activities.
