K-12 Education
On-Site, Hands-on programs for elementary schools, led by teachers and parents trained at SERC, provide rewarding educational experiences for adult leaders as well as children.

Distance Learning
Electronic Field Trips and video conferences carry our educational mission into classrooms and homes across the country and help us bring millions of participants into the lab and the field to learn about research where it occurs.

Public Programs
From story-hour with children to guided canoe trips and scientific lectures, our calendar of public programs offers something for everyone.

Programs for Clubs and Schools
SERC offers specific programs aimed at the interests of a variety of groups such as outdoor clubs, senior centers, and local schools.

Professional Training
Another important part of our education efforst focuses on preparing the next generation of environmental sciences. SERC's internship program provides undergraduate and graduate students from around the world a chance to conduct environmental research with the guidance of a scientific mentor.

The postdoctoral fellowship program provides scientists at any career stage support for collaborative research with SERC scientists.

Fellows, interns and graduate students are important members of SERC's research team. They make substantial contributions to the Center's research effort while continuing their educations.
