Science Outreach

Science outreach includes organized activities targeted at youth, school teachers, and the general public that will increase their interest, understanding, and involvement in math, science, and engineering.

Stanford is one of the first U.S. universities to create a permanent office dedicated to science outreach to address concerns about declining achievement in U.S. K-12 schools, the inadequate supply of trained American scientists and engineers to fill future jobs in the U.S., and the overall decline in scientific literacy of our citizenry.

The Office of Science Outreach provides programs faculty members can tap into to fulfill outreach requirements. We can suggest outreach ideas to incorporate in your proposal, review and give feedback on a draft proposal, find a specific audience/partner for your project, or write/acquire letters of support from project partners/participants.
