The COSMOS program is intended to motivate prospective scientists, engineers, and mathematicians to actively participate in the business and higher educational sectors of the State of California. The central experience for COSMOS students includes three courses: two science, math, or engineering courses and one science communication course.

  • Directly participate in all classroom, laboratory and fieldtrips.
  • Collaborate with other Teacher Fellows to design customized Science Communication curriculum
  • Assist students in the development of their team research project presentations.
