First and second graders from local public schools come on a field trip to explore and experience these fun and engaging activities at Stanford. They are introduced to the “work of a geologist” with hands-on educational activities focusing on minerals, rocks, fossils, and soil. The activities are led by graduate and undergraduate students, who eagerly volunteer to express their love of geology.We are always looking for new volunteers to help lead the program. Students of all disciplines are encouraged to help. If you would like to participate, please contact us.
Field Trips for Elementary School Teachers
The Collaborative Haptics and Robotics in Medicine (CHARM) Lab creates robots and human-computer interfaces that use haptics in order to improve human health, safety, and quality of life. The word haptics refers to the sense of touch. Applications of our research include:
- Robot-assisted surgery
- Simulation and training
We offer field trips and demos/presentations in classrooms to local K-12 schools.
