This collection contains publications, workshop notebooks, articles, conference brochures, and correspondence of the Science House, 1991-2010.

The Science House works in partnership with K-12 teachers and students to promote the use and impact of hands-on inquiry based learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It engages faculty and students at NC State University and other institutions to enrich teachers’ content knowledge and to help students visualize careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines. The Science House has six locations across North Carolina and has existed since at least 1991.

Biographical/historical note

The Science House is a national model for the interaction of university science departments and K-12 students and teachers. It began as the primary learning outreach program of NC State’s College of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, and its mission has been to increase student enthusiasm for science and mathematics by partnering with teachers and schools to promote hands-on, inquiry-based learning. It engages faculty and students at NC State University and other institutions to enrich teachers’ content knowledge and to help students visualize careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics disciplines. The Science House has existed since at least 1991, and it is located in Centennial Campus with 8,400 square feet of classrooms, offices, a teaching laboratory, and a computer-learning center as well as six satellite locations throughout North Carolina. In 2013 became part of the new College of Sciences.
