RockEDU Science Outreach represents the collective science outreach and engagement efforts out of The Rockefeller University. The RockEDU team works in collaboration with scientists, students, educators, and fellow engagement professionals to produce programs and resources that meet the specific needs of our audiences. From research skills building workshops to accessible science-themed webinars to mentorship trainings, we approach our work by supporting humanity first, science second. Afterall, science is people driven, and should exist for everyone!


The global COVID-19 pandemic has upended peoples’ lives and disrupted our ways of connecting in person; however, scientific research and RockEDU’s role in connecting scientists and our community are ongoing! For engagement online, check out our webinar series, Talking Science and D4P, and our online content at RockEDU Online. We are thrilled to be hosting our spring and summer high school research programs in person! And importantly, we’re hard at work within our scientific community, as we learn and change to make our scientific spaces more inclusive and conducive to diverse, creative research.

Student 2021

The process of science changed for me because I thought that it was difficult and that I couldn’t be wrong, but this program allowed to be confident in my abilities and in my mistakes as well as understand that the science process is fun.
