K-12 Outreach

Connecting Purdue University scientists with elementary and secondary schools, students, teachers and families.

The College of Science K-12 Outreach programs provide science and mathematics professional development programs for K-12 teachers, establish long-term partnerships with school districts, and engage students in standards-based activities. Outreach Coordinators are expert educators who work collaboratively with elementary and secondary schools to develop standards-based, high-quality interactions that increase student learning.

Our goals are to:

  1. Provide professional development and support for K-12 science and mathematics educators.
  2. Create and facilitate programs to encourage interest and enthusiasm for science and mathematics learning in K-12 students that will foster increased scientific literacy and efficacy.
  3. Create opportunities for broader impact by working with institutions of higher education, industry, and governmental agencies to support scientific literacy.
  4. Help research faculty identify P-12 partners to participate in research grant engagement activities.
