Sense of Wonder
Our outreach program aims to inspire and we do that by offering hands-on STEM learning in our community and on campus.
Connecting with Our Community
We do outreach at Swenson College in a big way. Our students, faculty and staff engage with local students in the surrounding Minnesota and Wisconsin communities to encourage interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
To support and promote more informed and engaged citizens and inspire the next generation of STEM workers.
To provide engaging STEM experiences for 6th-12th grade students, prioritizing connections with underserved students.
