Science-U is dedicated to advancing science literacy in youth through the sharing and discovery of scientific knowledge within the intellectual foundations at Penn State. Our chief goals are to educate and inspire students, encourage their critical thinking, and prepare them to become responsible, skilled, and caring scientists and citizens when faced with tomorrow’s challenges.
Domains of Impact
