Outreach

We believe that science is worth sharing.

STEM outreach has been a core part of the IRM since the beginning. Through partnerships with schools, universities, and nonprofit organizations, our staff and researchers teach K-16 students in the Philadelphia area scientific skills and provide them with exciting and accurate information about regenerative biology. Our reach is also global through award-winning programs like Project BioEYES – which has impacted over 130,000 students across three countries so far.

We strive to provide opportunities to build communication and teaching skills for faculty, trainees, and students. We are here to support your drive to engage with the community and assist with including this work in your research proposals.

We invite you to get involved in our successful STEM outreach programs and collaborate to find new ways to engage students in Penn’s backyard and beyond.
