The projects we work with include activities that promote STEM education at the K-20 level. Below is a list of the projects we currently work with.
Avenues of Scientific Discovery is a graduate student run event open to local high school students and the Fargo-Moorhead community. NDSU graduate student's have created hands-on activities that showcase their fields of study that will allow you to experience what science is all about in the real world. Stop by and check out the many different booths set up while you move at your own pace to investigate what these life-science fields are all about. Participate in the activities, pose questions to the graduate students, or just come to witness science in action. Everyone is welcome!
North Dakota Governor's Schools is a six-week residential program for scholastically motivated North Dakota high school sophomores and juniors. Students live, work, and have fun on NDSU's campus. Governor's Schools' academic programs offer high-quality, concentrated instruction from NDSU faculty through classroom experiences, discussion groups, labs, field trips, and other activities.
The North Dakota Science Olympiad is part of the premier science competitions in the nation offered through the the National Science Olympiad program. The National Science Olympiad provides rigorous, standards-based challenges to more than 7,300 teams in 50 states. North Dakota's Science Olympiad serves more than 700 students. Science Olympiad's ever-changing line-up of events in all STEM disciplines exposes students to practicing scientists and career choices, and energizes classroom teachers with a dynamic content experience.
Expanding Your Horizons is a nationwide conference held for young women in grades 7-9 to encourage and develop their career interests in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in an effort to overcome a history of limited participation by women in these career fields. The tri-college consortium offers a one-day regional Expanding Your Horizons conference each year in April to connect students with women working in STEM career fields and foster a love of STEM education.
