Outreach Activities

Mississippi State University and the I2AT are deeply committed to working to support school systems, individual schools, classrooms, teachers and students to promote STEM and other educational opportunities and develop programs that educate and inspire tomorrow’s scientists, engineers and mathematicians.

We believe strongly that advancing STEM education requires collaboration among industry, educators, policy makers and families that is why participation we engage in activities that bring state-of-the-art technologies, the beauty of the microscopic world, and the enthusiasm of scientific research to K-12, undergraduates, and the community as a whole. The technologies available at I2AT are out of reach for the individual classroom or school to acquire personally, but are made accessible through a variety of outreach efforts.

We enjoy sharing the exciting world of microscopy and microananlysis with all those who are interested. We can host demonstrations and tours of our microscopy center that will reveal a whole other realm of exploaration. The facility tours and instrument demonstrations are available for classes (grade school through college level) or small groups. There are various levels of tours; basic observation, simple sample preparation and microscope operation based on levels of interest, participants age, or the number of participants.
