ESF Science Corps

The Science Corps supports campus-based, in-school, workplace and field-based STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) learning and professional development experiences for middle and high school students and teachers, with a focus on sustainability. Established by a National Science Foundation grant in 2003, ESF undergraduate and graduate students, staff, alumni, faculty, and other volunteers comprise the Science Corps. Members are front line role models for students whose academic and career plans are emerging.

Current Science Corps efforts include ESF SCIENCE, The Science Corps Tutoring Program, and the Environmental Challenge science fair. The ESF Science Corps also contributes to the ESF in the High School program and has historically included the NSF GK12 project. Efforts are undertaken in partnership with urban, suburban and rural schools as well as numerous public, private and non-profit organizations. In addition, Science Corps members serve the greater Syracuse community through their involvement in a variety of environmental outreach and educational programs, such as outdoor festivals and K-12 events.
