The Chemistry Department at Stanford sponsors a high school outreach program aimed at exposing students toexciting chemistry labs, graduate school, research and the steps to becoming a scientist. Small outreach groups from Stanford Chemistry are hosting presentations on- and off-campus for local high school students.
Stanford Student Sponsored Outreach
Programs in Chemistry
The Stanford Alchemy Society, previously known as the Stanford Chemistry Club, is a student-run group sponsored by the Chemistry Department. We put on chemistry shows for local elementary, junior high, and high schools in the Bay Area as well as on campus demos for visiting children.
The Stanford Materials Research Society (MRS) group encourages interdisciplinary communication and education about materials issues. Stanford MRS accomplishes this by organizing social gatherings of students from various engineering and science departments interested in materials research. MRS is also active with a number of different outreach programs in the Bay Area that emphasize science education.
