Little EINSTEINs, or Little Explorers In 'Nterdisciplinary Sciences To Encourage INspiration, is a program founded to expose elementary school students to STEM, encourage them to enter higher education, inspire them to pursue a STEM-related career in the future, and showcase the interdisciplinary nature of STEM.  The main component of this outreach effort consists of by request classroom visits to schools where teachers can choose an experiment/demonstration from a list (see current list below) and schedule a time for our college students to teach an in-class lesson with 4 components: warm-up, mini-lesson, experiment/demonstration, and review.  The idea is to allow students to have fun experiencing a STEM activity and interacting with current college students in addition to learning a little bit about the science behind what they are doing.  Occasionally, we will host our activities at science fairs and science nights by request.

Mission:

To expose elementary school students to the interdisciplinary nature of STEM, encourage them to enter higher education, and inspire them to pursue a STEM-related career in the future.

Outreach:

K-6 teachers can choose an experiment/demonstration from our lessons (see current list below) and schedule a time for our college students to teach a 1-hour in-class lesson with 4 components: warm-up, mini-lesson, experiment/demonstration, and review.
