The mission of the Stanford ESP community is to reach out, to enthuse young eager minds, and share our muses and sources of joy and inspiration with people around us, especially high school students.
We offer days on campus full of academic and non-academic classes taught by Stanford students. ESP invites students to attend classes that could vary from completely “non-academic” stuff like cookie baking and origami, to complicated and challenging classes on machine theory or quantum mechanics.
The next Splash! Days will be April 13 - 14, 2013
The Stanford Math Circle (SMC) is a weekly gathering of high school (or younger) students working on problems involving complex and advanced mathematical topics, guided by mathematicians and educators.
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.
Stanford offers many free lectures for the general public on science and engineering topics that are delivered by Stanford's top researchers in terms understandable to the lay public. Examples include the SLAC Lecture Series and the Summer Science Lecture Series. See the "Lectures & Public Events" page on this site for more information.
SLAC offers free guided tours of its National Accelerator Laboratory on the third Friday of each month. Each tour lasts approximately 1.5 hours and includes a visit to the lab's 2-mile linear accelerator. Please see the Tours FAQ for more detail.
SLAC's tours are open to all visitors 12 years of age and above. Children under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
