Graduate Outreach



MORE – Mentorship Opportunities for Research Engagement

The Northwestern University Mentorship Opportunities for Research Engagement exists to provide graduate students and post-docs opportunities to mentor high school students in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). This organization grew out of a partnership with Niles West High School where students participate in high level STEM research under the mentorship of NU graduate students. We aim to expand our connections with local high schools to engage students in real science.

SITC – Science In The Classroom

Science in the Classroom (SITC) is flagship service program for the Alpha Gamma Chapter of Phi Lambda Upsilon (PLU), a chemistry honor society.  SITC works with Hayt Elementary school to supplement their third and fourth grade science curriculum with lessons focusing on single topics such as “Pressure and Gases”, “Electricity” and “Simple Machines”.  Our main goal is to help the students see themselves as future scientists, while volunteers guide small groups of 4-5 students through a series of hands on experiments over an hour period.
