The CCMR Educational Programs Office (EPO) regularly visits classrooms in Ithaca and the surrounding areas to present hands-on science modules and/or give science talks. Presentations are given by Cornell staff, undergraduate, graduate and/or faculty volunteers and are available to all grade levels.
Lesson plans for many of the modules we use can be found in our lending library of experiments. If you don’t find the right activity for your classroom, let us know. We might be able to suggest an appropriate one or even develop a new module to help meet your needs. Every effort is made to align the hands-on modules with New York State’s Learning Standards for Math, Science and Technology.
Previous visits have included:
All presentations are free of charge and available to not only classroom teachers, but afterschool and community groups as well. If you would like to request a visit to your classroom or afterschool program, please contact the outreach office at (607) 255-1486 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
