Supported by the National Science Foundation, the GK-12 Fellows program at the University of Colorado at Boulder explores innovative ways for engineering graduate students to use engineering as the vehicle to provide K-12 classroom instruction and hands-on experiences that integrate physical sciences, mathematics, engineering and technology. Engineering “Fellows” fill a crucial gap in the two-way exchange of content and pedagogy between the College of Engineering and Applied Science and the K-12 community of learners. The active presence of real world, engineering role models in K-12 classrooms improves the quality of math and science content, and introduces engineering to teachers and young students as a potential career path. Working through the University's graduate program legitimizes K-12 outreach as a valid, and satisfying, academic endeavor for graduate students.
