Welcome to CSATS

The Center for Science and the Schools (CSATS) facilitates mutually beneficial and sustainable relationships between K-12 schools and Penn State science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) researchers and outreach professionals, with the goal of helping to strengthen science and technology education.


By providing expertise in design, professional development, evaluation, and school needs, we help scientists and engineers develop and implement school outreach plans.


CSATS helps bring modern learning theory into teacher professional development, classroom programs, and new educational resources in STEM education.


We provide a clearing-house of information about STEM educational opportunities and potential partners for new educational innovations.
