Hello Pittsburgh teachers! Carnegie Mellon University’s College of Engineering’s Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion has a lot of inspirational graduate student researchers, who are enthusiastic and excited about STEAM (especially engineering) outreach! Carnegie Mellon University College of Engineering is currently serving public schools, and schools that work with marginalized communities, that are within a 20 minute Uber or Lyft ride of CMU’s campus.
For K-5 classrooms, they can bring lessons that support Earth Science, Life Science, Physical Science, and Engineering.
They continue to work with their partners at UC Berkeley and Community Resources for Science, in Berkeley, CA, and can likely provide any of the K-5 lessons found here: https://crscience.org/outreach/lessonarchive/, with enough lead time to gather materials if it is a lesson that they have not yet built out.
If you are interested in having CMU graduate students visit your classroom, either to support an upcoming lesson, or to bring a NGSS lesson or activity, please fill out their google form. As former K-12 teachers themselves, they are looking forward to working together with you in order to better support Pittsburgh teachers in any way they can. Carnegie Mellon University College of Engineering especially aims to work more closely with Pittsburgh Public School faculty this Fall!
