About Us

We know that before students start envisioning themselves in STEM fields, they need many things: the chance to see themselves in the lab; to be surrounded by like-minded peers and mentors; access to immersive, hands-on activities and workshops; and—most important—encouragement at every turn.

The Office of Pre-Collegiate Outreach Programs (POP) is committed to offering all of the above STEM programming to high school students and their families. With programs in areas ranging from robotics, physics, and video game design to music, computer science, and the humanities, we provide collaborative experiences that inspire exploration and discovery for students of all ages, interests, and experience levels.
