What is Science Outreach?
Science Outreach is a series of student centered opportunities for off-campus and on campus programs dedicated to teaching and mentoring in the sciences. Participants in the program engage in hands-on experiences and learn about fascinating topics related to science and/or mathematics at a young age.
To increase participation of Wellesley College students in their community by:
Providing science and/or mathematics enrichment to a broad range of participants focusing on the needs of students underrepresented in the sciences.
Building partnerships with formal and informal education providers.
Supporting a range of student contributions and volunteerism in existing programs using a students-teaching-students model for community involvement through student driven curriculum development and teaching.
Encouraging a life-long investment in service to community.
- Providing a model of women as scientists.
