Advancing Scientific Minds
Children are born scientists; naturally curious, they want to understand why and how things work. With the right education and nurturing, their quest for answers will mature along with them — from wanting to know how a computer works to pursuing a bachelor’s in biocomputing.
We go beyond the classroom, helping students understand science through real-life problem solving scenarios and inquiry-based instruction. Our science outreach programs give students a robust learning experience, broaden their understanding of science, and encourage young scientists to keep asking questions.
Science outreach programs at IUPUI provide support for K-12 teachers interested in expanding their classroom resource base in the sciences. These initiatives enhance teachers’ professional development, helping them become subject matter experts and improve their materials and methods.
For teachers in training, the School of Science and IUPUI provide valuable experience in urban classrooms.
