Student Engagementchildrens workshops

In addition to working with pre-service and in-service teachers, we feel strongly about having opportunities to work with K-12 students.

There are no upcoming workshops.  Please check back regularly for an updated list of events.

K-12 Programs (open to the public)
The Andrews Institute offers many K-12 programs are open to the public by registering on this site. The programs vary with the availability of presenters and space.  We offer both one-day and multi-day experiences for K-12 students. The availability of workshop depends on the extent of external funding.

Please note that there is a minimum number of participants required in order to fund these workshops and a re-confirmation email will be sent out at least three days prior to the event.

K-12 Programs (invitation only)
Through Andrews Institute partnerships with school districts and community organization, we collaborate to provide K-12 students with the opportunity to work with scientists, mathematicians and educators at TCU. These programs are by invitation only. Students may be invited to participate in a program designed for students who have shown unusual talent in mathematics or science. These students would have accelerated and advanced programs. Other students may be invited to participate in a program designed for those who are at risk of not achieving at grade level in mathematics and science.

Some programs are developed in response to request by partnering school districts, therefore only including students selected by the district. Others may be funded by an external source with specific requirements as to who may attend.
