Harvard University K-12

The MRSEC Center actively promotes interdisciplinary education, and research in materials science and engineering. MRSEC participants are actively involved in programs that engage the public, teachers, students, and young scientists and engineers in the excitement of scientific discovery, which increases awareness of the impact of scientific research on their daily lives. The Center's goals are to increase public engagement in and awareness of advances in materials science and engineering, and to promote career advancement for a diverse group of scientists who represent the future of materials science. The educational initiatives at the pre-college, undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral levels include embedded diversity initiatives, and strategic collaborations whenever possible to encourage individuals from underrepresented groups to pursue careers in science and engineering.
