  Co-Author(s): Lisa Grable
  Abstract: University departments in the STEM fields often work to develop partnerships and collaboration with K-12 school districts and other community partners. What are the issues with building a bridge from current research and practice in physics and other science and engineering to inquiry-based activities for the K-12 classroom? What are challenges to be addressed when working with teachers or students? How can one go from one-shot, feel-good demonstrations to sustained support and student achievement? What are the possible sources of funding for developing programs? How can university faculty and students be engaged in outreach work? Examples from The Science House at NC State University and other programs will be presented. See for information and resources.
