Student Activities

Studnets working on a Biology activity

While the primary focus of Purdue Science K-12 Outreach is teacher support, we also offer programs aimed at engaging students and parents in the excitement of science.

Upcoming Student Activities

AP Fridays

The purpose of these lab sessions is to provide schools with the time and support needed to conduct suggested AP Labs in a guided-inquiry format on a college campus. Participation in one of the scheduled labs would help to ensure AP students have access to necessary resources outlined in both the AP Environmental Science and AP Chemistry curriculum frameworks that are requirements of the AP Course Audit.

See the current schedule.

Physics Inside Out

Physics Inside Out draws from contributions of Physics and Astronomy faculty, and the Outreach Coordinator, Dr. David Sederberg. The week-long summer program, enriches students in the diverse world of physics. Going beyond traditional curricula, Physics Inside Out engages middle school students with applications and innovations in physics principles and scientific research. This program is for students entering grades 7 and 8 in the fall of 2020.
