Welcome to CSATS

The Center for Science and the Schools (CSATS) at Penn State University facilitates mutually benefical and sustainable relationships between Penn State STEM researchers and outreach providers, and K-12 schools that enhance K-12 science and technology education across Pennsylvania.


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.
