CU Science Discovery’s School-Based STEM Workshops are full-day/5-hour STEM immersion programs for up to three, 4th-8th grade classrooms. Workshops feature an introduction, three 75-minute classes focused on a specific theme or content area, and a program wrap-up. These programs are designed to:

  • Provide a full-day of engaging hands-on STEM learning and activities
  • Explore relevant science, engineering or pedagogical themes
  • Develop science, engineering and innovation process skills
  • Share cutting-edge science from the University of Colorado Boulder

While there are grant and scholarship opportunities available for some workshops, the base-cost for a full-day STEM Workshop at your school is $450 for the first class, and $375 for each additional class. Additional travel and logistical fees apply for schools outside the Denver metro area. A general overview of program logistics is below:

  • STEM Workshops can accommodate one to three full classes (up to 90 students).
  • The CU Science Discovery team will arrive at your school the evening before, or early the morning of programs, to set up an extensive set of teaching materials.
  • The workshop can run in a single, or multiple classrooms depending on the number of learners.
  • Ideally, two and three-class workshops will have access to an auditorium or multipurpose room for large group introduction and wrap-up activities.
  • Programming can accommodate full-day and period-based schedules with three 45-75 minute classes.
  • Sample Schedule (75-minute classes):
    • 9-9:30am: Introduction
    • 9:45-11am: Class One
    • 11-11:45am: Lunch
    • 11:45am-1pm: Class Two
    • 1:15-2:30pm: Class Three
    • 2:30-3pm: Wrap-Up
