USC Viterbi PreK-12 STEM Outreach

Our mission is to:
- Improve the diversity of STEM fields through targeted outreach to underrepresented minority groups and girls
- Provide high impact programs locally, regionally, nationally and globally
- Facilitate PreK-12 STEM education networks and research
- Share the broader impacts of USC Viterbi’s faculty research
