A series of programs hosted by different programs at the University of Arizona, the opportunities below are designed to use hands-on activities to communicate the importance of science, reinforce STEM education, and give undergraduates an opportunity to visit K-12 classrooms and apply their own education to teach other students.
Arizona Mathematics Road Show - The Arizona Mathematics Road Show is modeled on The Physics Factory, and brings hands-on science activities to both schools and Boys and Girls Clubs
Biotechnology Laboratory Experience for High School Students (BLAST) - Students get the opportunity to work with state-of-the-art molecular biological laboratory techniques
BIOTECH Project - The BIOTECH Project visits high school and middle school classrooms to conduct Biotechnology and Molecular Biology activities, including DNA extraction, DNA fingerprinting, Bacterial Transformation, Protein Electrophoresis, ELISA, and PCR
NASA Space Grant Program Science Speakers - Science speakers offer a diverse set of presentations on basic science questions and environmental topics.
Physics Factory - Includes the Physics Bus, a literal science museum on wheels, and a team of scientists who enjoy sharing their enthusiasm for STEM through hands-on learning and stage shows
Tree-Ring Lab School Presentations - Explore the basics of tree-ring research through exercises and presentations
- Women in Science and Engineering - WISE visits K-12 schools to provide interactive, hands-on programming aimed at piquing student interest in STEM fields. Our program offerings change yearly.
