Teachers (K-12)

Dartmouth frequently welcomes student groups to campus. K-12 teachers can find out how to bring their class to Dartmouth, request a program on-site at their school, or make an inquiry about other opportunities. The Outreach office can coordinate requests for graduate students and/or faculty to visit your classroom.

Teaching Science Roundtable

In these informal half-day sessions Dartmouth faculty join science and math teachers in the region to explore common themes in teaching science: What keeps students engaged in science? How do we measure learning? How do we incorporate current research in the classroom?

Dartmouth's Teaching Science Roundtables are co-facilitated by a Dartmouth faculty member and a teacher from a regional school district. Roundtables are held on request. Contact us if you're interested.

School Visits

Many schools have visited campus to participate in one or several programs hosted at Dartmouth. Learn more about our current programs or reach out directly to discuss other opportunities.

Science Olympiad

We are proud to host the Northern New England Region National Science Olympiad contest on campus.

In December 2017, we hosted 20 teams from the region and encourage teachers to reach out to learn how we can help you develop and coach your school’s team.

For details on registration, and other tournament information, please visit the Science Olympiad page.

Upper Valley Brain Bee

The Neuroscience Center at Dartmouth and the Society for Neuroscience New Hampshire Chapter host the Upper Valley Brain Bee at Dartmouth College. The Brain Bee is a fun and educational neuroscience competition for high school students. Self-study materials are available and teachers can request Dartmouth graduate students to visit your school to help you train.

Skype with a Scientist

This program is run through the Physics and Astronomy department at Dartmouth. Teachers are encouraged to register to participate in this fun program which brings experts from the field into the classroom virtually. Students can ask questions to the scientist and reflect on their learning through the program.

Please inquire for more information on how to get involved.

GK12 Program

The 2014-2015 academic year was the final year of the five-year NSF funded Dartmouth GK12 Program. If you are interested in having a graduate student work with you on a curricular piece, please contact Amanda Skinner, Assistant Director of Outreach.
