Students, researchers, and faculty in our Department believe that public outreach and community engagement are important components of our public service mission. By actively partnering with local K-12 schools and other groups, we strive to inspire students of all ages in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Every year, we reach tens of thousands of curious minds with presentations, exhibits, and demonstrations. We aim to increase our community engagement in ways that are sustainable and compatible with our finite human and financial resources. Visitors to our website can learn about our annual events, request a field trip to UCLA, or request an outreach visit to their school or organization.
