This program allows Brown’s STEM graduate students to work closely with Elementary, Middle and High schools by conducting weekly science lessons at different K-12 schools. Brown graduate students from STEM departments including Geology, Physics, and Engineering lead classroom and after-school activities in several elementary and high schools in Providence. The graduate students engage Providence students in hands-on, inquiry based activities designed to increase students' understanding and interest in science. This program also seek to support training and paid summer internships for Providence teachers and students to participate in research projects with Brown graduate students and faculty projects with Brown graduate students and faculty.
