Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry Outreach Program

To receive news and updates about Chemistry Outreach, please sign up on our email list-serve.

Our Fifth Grade Chemistry Outreach Program is a partnership between local elementary students and teachers and UCSB students and faculty. To improve educational opportunities for K-12 students, we have developed a program that brings fifth grade students to the chemistry lab at UCSB every Thursday morning to participate in hands-on standards-based physical science activities. The program is designed to nourish their natural curiosity in science and to stimulate an interest in pursuing a higher education in science.  In addition, UCSB students are given the opportunity to share their love of science with elementary students and to consider a career path as a science educator.
