 Education & Outreach Overview


The Education and Outreach (EO) program is an essential part of the CRISP. CRISP EO offers activities that promote the interdisciplinary and innovative aspects of materials science to a diverse group of participants. The objective of the program is to enhance the education of future scientists, science teachers, K-12 students, parents, and the general public. Our goal is to offer interdepartmental and intercollegiate programs in modern materials science education to address the following needs:

  • Improved scientific literacy of future voters and public officials
  • More qualified science teachers who are well educated and socially diverse
  • State-of-the-art research experiences for undergraduate students
  • Increased multidisciplinary education and training for graduate students

CRISP EO programs have evolved based on a process of feedback and evaluation into its signature programs:

Materials Initiative for STEM Education (MISE)
Materials Initiative for Multidisciplinary Education and Research (MIMER)
