Scientist in Residence Program

UT Geoscience graduate student Allison Pace leads fifth-grade students through an outdoor learning activity she developed with teacher Trevor Hance at Laurel Mountain ES.

UT-Austin’s Scientist in Residence (SciRes) program partners STEM graduate students and K-12 science teachers. The SciRes program goals are to engage K-12 students in the excitement of scientific discovery, help teachers address the TEKS through innovative learning activities and train graduate students in science communication. Graduate students and teachers receive a stipend for their participation in the program. Participants can choose from a range of time commitments to the program.
