K-12 Students and Educators

Students from Queens High School for Information, Research and Technology attend First Robotics Kickoff.

The Outreach Programs Office connects local K-12 students and educators with the world-class STEM resources at Columbia Engineering.

Most outreach programs are designed to encourage sustainable long-term partnerships with local schools. We are committed to building strong relationships with and serving underrepresented students and under-served schools in the community surrounding Columbia University.


You may be interested in visiting our research laboratories as a field trip, hosting classroom STEM talk, and securing a volunteer to support STEM projects in the classroom.


You may be interested in joining programs that have open applications:

  1. Girls Who Code
  2. SHAPE
