The College of Science is dedicated to serving our community and providing pathways for developing science literacy and engagement. Goal 4 of our Strategic Plan focuses on “achieving critical and visible impact locally, nationally and globally.” This includes action items related to outreach that we are putting into practice across our seven departments. As a whole, the College supported numerous events in FY23, including Discovery Days and Juntos Family Day.
Discovery Days is held twice a year as an opportunity to engage with local elementary school kids for a hands-on STEM fair experience. This event gathered more than 1,500 students and 300 OSU students, faculty and staff volunteers. In collaboration with Open Campus, Juntos Family Day provided Latinx students and their families with a dynamic college exploration experience in spring 2023.
