Several of our outreach programs involve engagement with public schools in the Omaha region. For example, the Teachers Researcher Partnership Program (TRPP), which gives an opportunity for teachers from surrounding public schools to assist in research while paired with research faculty from UNO.
Further, The NE STEM 4U program focuses on undergraduate students bringing exciting STEM activities to elementary and middle schoolers in Omaha, Kearney, and Lincoln public schools.
EUREKA! is a STEM camp for girls that begins for them the summer before eighth grade and supports them throughout high school while continuously strengthening their interest in STEM. UNO emphasizes outreach programs that share interest in STEM with surrounding area public schools.
Much of this work is supported by grants initiated through collaborations with STEM TRAIL Center personnel; see our research page for information on these grants.
