The College of Natural Sciences Education & Outreach Center is an incubator for innovation in STEM education. We serve both CSU and K-12 students and faculty through a wide variety of programs. A common thread that weaves through all of our programs is increasing the quality, quantity, and diversity of students in STEM disciplines. Particular emphasis is on finding new ways to promote scientific creativity and innovation, attributes essential for global competitiveness in the 21st century. Many of our programs focus on providing authentic scientific research experiences for both learners and teachers.
