Meaningful Involvement of Science Undergraduates in K-12 Outreach
Rao, Sujaya; Shamah, Devora; Collay, Ryan
Journal of College Science Teaching, v36 n6 p54-58 May 2007
The authors argue for the involvement of science undergraduates in K-12 outreach to enhance their communication skills, generate enthusiasm for science in today's youth, and extend relationships between institutions of higher learning and surrounding communities. Here we present three opportunities created at Oregon State University for engaging science undergraduates in formal and informal K-12 instruction, and discuss the benefits to students and to the institution.
