Home / About / Community Outreach

We take an active role in the community through a variety of outreach programs.

Ask A Biologist is an educational resource for students pre-K-12, as well as their teachers and parents. Started in 1997 in the School of Life Sciences, this tremendously popular website draws 10,000 visitors each month. The site is staffed by a dedicated group of volunteers.

School of Life Sciences: Graduate Partners in Science Education

Graduate Partners in Science Education is a K-8 outreach program developed, run and staffed by graduate student volunteers. By providing hands-on science lessons to underserved students, our talented volunteers are directly involved in supporting science departments across the Valley. Started in 2005, this program is supported by Phoenix Preparatory Academy, ASU´s School of Life Sciences, Division of Graduate Studies and anonymous donations.
