Science Outreach

UT Science / Engineering Community Program

An exciting outreach program to area K-12 schools and to the East Tennessee community started in 1991. Dr. Al Hazari, program developer and director, showcases science and engineering concepts through a variety of hands-on demonstrations and experiments to students and teachers and to the general public. Some of the community activities include visits to after-school programs, doing senior science at assisted-living facilities, working with scouts and holding summer science camps

Support comes from the UT College of Engineering and the UT College of Arts & Sciences as well as from the American Chemical Society, the Institute for Chemical Education, the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, and Title II / Eisenhower. Many area businesses have also contributed funding and materials.
