Students working with robotics

Outreach at Tufts Center for Engineering Education and Outreach (CEEO) is structured with the purpose of sharing CEEO research, curricula, and tools through public-facing initiatives with an emphasis on equitable participation. We have a variety of programs for K-12 students, and formal and informal educators. All of our programs are grounded in hands-on, open-ended design challenges that give participants experience in doing engineering.

Outreach programs for students include the Outreach Learning Fellow program (OLF), a year-long program that places Tufts undergraduate and graduate students in local classrooms to provide engineering experiences to K-8 students from diverse backgrounds who might otherwise lack access to hands-on engineering, and Design and Engineering Workshops (DEW) which offer hands-on engineering workshops for K-12 students. Opportunities for educators include professional development workshops and the Teacher Engineering Education Program (TEEP) which allows educators to get a certificate in engineering education.
