K-12 STEM Outreach

  • picture of students

The College of Engineering and Physical Sciences is dedicated to supplying the STEM pipeline in New Hampshire and the surrounding region by partnering with industry and K-12 schools throughout the state. Businesses, students, the environment, and the economy all benefit when the university, K-12 schools and industry work together.

The mission of our outreach program is to provide inspiration, role models and experiences to K-12 students, while supporting educators, highlighting the benefits of STEM education, and promoting opportunities for students within the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences.

In the Spring of 2016, we launched our new STEMbassadors outreach initiative, which is expected to reach 2,500 students and teachers in the K-12 community from all 10 New Hampshire Counties on an annual basis. The student group consists of 40-plus CEPS students from all nine of our academic departments. STEMbassadors will offer a menu of hands-on STEM experiences for students to bring to schools and host here on our state-of-the-art campus in Durham.
