Youth Programs

The School of Mines offers unique high-quality programming for our next generation of scientists and engineers . . . that is, today's elementary, middle and high school students. Our goal is to turn young minds on to the astounding, challenging, and FUN worlds of science and engineering, and no one can do this better than the faculty and students of the School of Mines through hands-on activities and one-on-one interactions.  Open new doors for your child and encourage their talents and interests.
