Stanford Student Sponsored Outreach

Programs for Stanford Grads/Post-Docs

Haas Science In Service

Science in Service is a unique collaboration of Stanford students, science and engineering faculty, service-learning educators, and Peninsula community organizations. The program connects Stanford students to youth in our neighboring communities through science mentorship and after-school science clubs, providing students a unique opportunity to learn about and participate in science outreach.

Science Bus

The Science Bus offers an after-school science curriculum for grade school children at the East Palo Alto Charter School (EPACS), a great school in a low-income part of the San Francisco Bay Area. The program is developed and taught by graduate and undergraduate students at Stanford University. We welcome any member of the Stanford Community who has knowledge of science and an interest in teaching to join us and make a difference in the lives of promising young students.

Office of Science Outreach

School of Engineering Student Organizations

Stanford's School of Engineering students are involved in the student chapters of many professional societies.....from the American indian Science and Engineering Society to Women in Electrical Engineering.

The School of Engineering also provides grants to student associations for projects or activities that benefit the engineering community. Groups and individuals from the undergraduate and graduate communities are invited to apply for support from the SoE/OSA Dean’s Office. The review committee evaluates proposals on a quarterly basis. More information here.

Optical Society of America - Stanford Student Chapter

Stanford's student chapter of the Optical Society of America is active in outreach to K-12 students and teachers. We offer hands-on demos and exhibits at Stanford's Community Day and at professional development programs for local high school physics teachers. Stanford students interested in optics are invited to participate

Society of Women Engineers

SWE sponsors a number of K-12 outreach programs, including Exploring New Worlds, Middle School Outreach, and Junior Engineering Technical Society (JETS) competitions called Tests of Engineering, Aptitude, Mathematics and Science (TEAMS).

Stanford Student Space Initiative

The Stanford Student Space Initiative gives future leaders of the space industry the hands-on experience and broader insight they need to realize the next era of space development.

The group has flown a zero gravity experiment with NASA, built multiple CubeSats, launched high altitude balloons and hosted over 100 speakers at talks and conferences.

Educational Studies Program/Splash!

April 9 - 10, 2016

Stanford ESP provides a fun and affordable educational experience for high school students through academic and non-academic classes taught by student volunteers at Stanford.

We currently run Stanford Splash, a one-weekend, on-campus outreach event, in both the fall and spring.  At Splash, Stanford students can run their own classes, sharing their knowledge and creativity with middle and high school students. With your support we hope to expand and reach out to more people, students and teachers alike."

EPATT (East Palo Alto Tennis & Tutoring)

EPATT is a non-profit youth development organization serving K-12th grade students. Through one-on-one tutoring, tennis lessons, direct instruction, college counseling and parent education, we prepare students for a productive future. Most of our volunteers are Stanford undergraduates and graduate students.

Girls Teaching Girls to Code

Girls Teaching Girls to Code is a program where Stanford women teach and inspire Bay Area high school girls to explore Computer Science and Engineering. Students learn coding basics, build exciting projects, and develop strong relationships with mentors in the field. Our annual Code Camp is our largest event, introducing 200 high school girls to computer science with the help of 45 inspirational Stanford mentors. We also host several smaller events throughout the year, including workshops, puzzle hunts, and company tours, to encourage continued engagement and to help our students further explore their passions.  Come join us!
