Scientists at the National Cancer Institute are committed to encouraging science literacy and increasing enthusiasm for STEM. Partners benefit from having researchers who are participating in cutting edge research assist in their classrooms and programs. We seek to help you fulfill your science needs, whether it be assistance with labs, facilitating workshops, or providing career guidance. In turn, we get to share our knowledge and expertise with students who may be the next generation of scientists.
NCI Education and Outreach Program (EOP) is currently partnering with the following schools and organizations.
Redland Middle School
Redland Middle School is part of the Magruder High School cluster of schools in Rockville, MD. We provide several tables to support their science night that takes place each spring.
Poolesville High School
Poolesville High School is a public magnet high school in Poolesville, MD. Our partnership with the Science, Math and Computer Science Program will assist the juniors and seniors with written and verbal science communication. For the juniors, we kick-off their newly developed journal club to prepare them for their summer internships. Rising seniors spend a summer participating in a professional STEM internship and subsequently produce a research paper, poster and presentation on their work. For the seniors, we provide workshops to aid their written science communication.
Wheaton High School
Wheaton High School is a public high school in Montgomery County, MD, near Silver Spring. We will collaborate with the Biomedical Science Academy and Project Lead the Way Program to bring scientists for career seminars, updates on current research and relevant topics, and support the Principles of Biomedical Science labs to encourage enthusiasm for STEM.
