 K-12 Education Outreach

  • Sunday Academy: Research related lesson plans taught during the NATURE Sunday Academy program:

    • Bio-based Materials
    • Engineering Composite Building Products
    • Purification of Water with Biobased Systems
    • Reactions with Light
    • Truss Design

  • Research related experiments (CRCS and CSMS related experiments):

    Experiments related to ND EPSCoR funded research have been developed by ND EPSCoR researchers and their graduate students for use by selected fifth and eighth grade rural K-12 teachers. The experiments have been taught to the teachers, and the teachers have been provided with some equipment and materials needed to carry out the experiments in their classrooms. They are now being made available for anyone to use
