Science in Service

Science in Service is a collaboration of Stanford students, science and engineering faculty, service-learning educators, and community organizations. The program connects Stanford students to youth in neighboring communities through science mentorship and after-school science programs. Stanford students receive training and practice ongoing reflection in order to deeply engage in conversations about learning and equity in science education. The goal is to create spaces that allow young people to have rich and fulfilling experiences using science as a way of knowing.

Service required by group to fulfill a Cardinal Commitment: Participants volunteer as mentors and actively participate in direct service, providing hands on science curriculum education to community youth. They also receive ongoing trainings and practice reflection to engage in deeper discussions around service and educational equity.
