Center for K-12 STEM Education
Welcome to the K-12 STEM Outreach portal, where we share experiences and opportunities in K-12 Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Education. Participants in our programs range from elementary students benefiting from our service learning course in Physics Pedagogy to high school students engaging in the exciting design and build process of the FIRST Robotics Bayou Regional Competition. At a time when our world is so dependent upon STEM innovation and discovery, it is important that we expose young people in meaningful and appealing ways, in order to encourage them to consider these fields. On this site, you can explore not only what we offer for K-12 students, but also how Tulane students, faculty, and staff and members of the surrounding community can get involved in volunteering at a local competition or science fair, mentoring a K-12 project or team, or assisting teachers in the classroom. The opportunities are endless! So roll up your sleeves, and jump right on in. It’s your turn to make a difference in the education of a child.
