K-12 Education

The Larson Institute's K-12 outreach activities are designed to reach, inspire, and motivate K-12 students about careers in science, engineering, and technology. Students learn about current topics that are relevant to their lives now and in the future.

Some of our sustained outreach initiatives include Graduate Research and Education in Advanced Transportation Technology (GREATT) Teacher workshops and the National Science Foundation Graduate Teaching Fellows in K-12 Education.
