Field Trips/Campus Visits for Middle School Teachers
The Collaborative Haptics & Robotics in Medicine (CHARM) Lab offers field trips and demos/presentations about haptics (i.e., the sense of touch) in local K-12 classrooms and on campus. The 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. There is no cost but the schedule fills up quickly.
Project Motivation, affectionately known as ProMo, is a student group dedicated to promoting higher education to minority youths through on-campus visits and tours. Project Motivation helps K-12 students tour part of campus, see a dorm room, hear college stories from undergraduates and get the scoop about college life. There is no charge for these visits.
MRS Outreach Ambassadors are graduate students in the Stanford Chapter of the Materials Research Society who offer in-class demonstrations and lectures on the materials of our world, materials of the future, and careers in science and engineering. Teachers may request a school visit at no charge.
The Stanford Visitor Center offers a range of no-cost tours, exploring the highlights of Stanford’s beautiful campus.
