IGERT Fellows Attend Training on Educational Outreach


IGERT fellows from Northwestern University and the University of Chicago are working with Project Exploration to learn best practices in educational outreach with youth. Project Exploration is a science education nonprofit in Chicago that works to ensure communities traditionally overlooked by science—particularly minority youth and girls—have access to personalized experiences with science and scientists. At the heart of our work are youth programs, which impact the lives of hundreds of students each year by fostering a long-term interest in science.
