The department maintains close ties with teachers, schools and informal science institutions in the greater Long Beach area. It undertakes projects aimed at pre-college through university students. The "Head Start on Science" project is developing a "sense of wonder" science component for 4-year old "Head Start" youngsters, their teachers and parents. The early childhood science education outreach has expanded with two CPEC grants for K-2 teachers and a Toyota USA summer science program for grades 2-5 teachers. Other projects include: Robert C. Noyce Scholarship Program, and Young Scientists' Camp. The department also sponsors a monthly research seminar series and the Association of Future Science Educators (AFSE) which is a student chapter of the National Science Teachers Association and California Science Teachers Association.
