The core activities that directly connect university faculty, their graduate students, and undergraduate students to partner schools are known as Faculty Outreach Collaborations. Faculty representing the School of Biological Sciences, School of Physical Sciences, the Henry Samueli School of Engineering, School of Information and Computer Sciences, UCI Department of Education, and the UCI Libraries are currently engaged in initiatives designed to strengthen comprehension and achievement in science and mathematics. The undergraduate science and math majors involved in these programs play multiple roles as they conduct hands-on demonstrations in preK-12 classrooms to introduce students to the excitement of scientific discovery and explore the possibility of pursuing a teaching career.
