Viterbi STEM Schools Partnership


Viterbi STEM Schools Partnership is a collaboration between K-12 schools and  USC Viterbi STEM Educational Outreach Programs (STEM-EOP) that offers expanded opportunities for authentic STEM experiences for students interested in STEM and professional development for their teachers.

We are not currently able to accept any more Full Partners for the 2017-2018 Academic Year. We can still accept Associate and Affiliate Partners. Interested schools can download the partnership details and agreement, get the last paged signed, and email it to Rochelle Urban, rurban@usc.edu.
