Mizzou Adventures in Education will be held Saturday April 18, 2015

Mizzou Adventures in Education is free public outreach event for families with children in grades K-6.

The annual event, sponsored by the Graduate School, features 25+ educational booths representing graduate research across campus. About 140 graduate student volunteers work on teams to plan and implement hands-on activities for children to encourage exploration, critical thinking and discovery.

Children gain knowledge across the sciences, humanities, arts, health, engineering, technology, numerous other fields, and interdisciplinary areas. By interacting with a diverse group of graduate students, adults learn about the criticality of graduate education and how research findings can benefit society.

The Chancellor’s Award for Public Outreach is awarded to three teams that most effectively translate their research into engaging, age-appropriate educational activities. New in 2014: A Chancellor’s Team Award for Interdisciplinary Outreach, co-sponsored by the Mizzou Advantage.

Now in its eighth year, Mizzou Adventures in Education attendance exceeds 700 children plus their family members. The next event will be held on April 18, 2015 on the MU campus.
