Educational Outreach

The Biology Department is involved in a number of educational outreach initiatives to connect the university to the community at large.


The Biology Department offers students internships in various learning environments.

Atlanta Science Festival

The Fostering Our Community’s Understanding of Science (FOCUS) is a service-learning project in partnership with Metro-Atlanta elementary and middle schools. The FOCUS program allows Science, Technology, Engineer, and Math (STEM) majors an opportunity to support STEM teaching and learning. Interns spend about 3-5 hours a week assisting a partner teacher. In addition to their service hours, interns meet once a week, in a reflective seminar to collaborate and share experiences and lessons. For more information, email: ​
