Educational Outreach

CNEEC has two kinds of outreach programs, namely, a high school teacher training program, and an undergraduate summer research program.

1) High School Teacher Training Program

This program includes research and training opportunities for high school teachers every summer for a period of two months under the mentorship of Center faculty. This provides an opportunity for interested high school teachers to participate in hands-on research activities related to CNEEC programs, and to learn new skills and tools that will help them for new course or curriculum development in their prospective high schools.

This program is coordinated through Stanford's Office of Science Outreach. Interested teachers may contact Kaye Storm, who manages the Office of Science Outreach programs at kstorm(at), or contact Prof. Turgut Gur at turgut(at)

2) Undergraduate Summer Research Program

We encourage interested undergraduate students to explore opportunities with CNEEC faculty to gain valuable experience in research, and participate in CNEEC programs. For more information please contact the individual Center faculty members or Prof. Turgut Gur, Executive Director, at turgut(at)
