Educational Initiatives

K–12 Outreach

Summer institutes have brought hundreds of people to the Carnegie Mellon campus for one day to two weeks of intensive hands-on laboratory experience and curriculum development discussions. New in 2000 was the Governor’s Institute for Physical Science Educators (GIPSE), funded by the State of Pennsylvania and co-directed by Karen Stump and Kip Bollinger, to support innovative curriculum development for K–12 teachers.

Garry Warnock and a staff of master teachers present a wide range of demonstrations and hands-on workshops to thousands of Pittsburgh area students, primarily at the middle school level.
