Outreach Programs

Community Engagement

Increasing community enrichment through outreach programs helps to foster the love of learning at any age. Here, at the College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences, we hope to encourage the number of individuals interested in STEM.

Explore. Seek. Discover.

Faculty and staff members work together on a project at Clemson.

Spotlight Experiences

Explore Mobile Bus

EXPLORE Mobile Lab

Spark Curiosity

The Explore Mobile Lab is an innovative project that brings engineering concepts to middle schools across the state. Through a partnership with Duke Energy, the EXPLORE Mobile Lab encourages children to view STEM-related activities as not only fun and exciting but also as windows to rewarding future careers.

EXPLORE Activities

Science As Art

A Visualization Challenge

Sometimes, science and art meet in the middle. Since its inception, “Science as Art” has challenged those at Clemson University as well as SC high school students to share the powerful and inspiring visual images produced in laboratories, workspaces, and learning environments. The resulting exhibits have drawn the attention of scientists, artists, members of the community and professional organizations.

Project WISE

A WISE Adventure

PROJECT WISE is a one-week residential camp for rising 7th and 8th-grade students to introduce them to careers in STEM. This engineering-focused event allows students to see how technology and science affect their lives in interesting ways. This camp also includes movie nights, arts and crafts, and outdoor activities.

Girls Scouts & Friends

Exploration & Creativity

GIRL SCOUTS & FRIENDS program is an outreach day that Girl Scout troops attend. This annual event is a collaboration with the Girls Scouts of South Carolina Mountains to Midlands and the Women in Science and Engineering Program (WISE). This event allows attendees to engage in hands-on STEM activities with Clemson faculty and students.

On-Campus Initiatives


The mission of PEER and WISE is to educate, recruit, and retain underrepresented populations in STEM fields through mentoring, academic coaching, counseling, and academic enrichment. Hands-on opportunities are fundamental to our goal of encouraging students to choose careers in STEM.

Please sign-up to volunteer if you would like to support the PEER/WISE programs with its mission to increase the number of women and underrepresented minorities in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math).

Sneak Preview group

Sneak Preview

Sneak Preview brings top-performing students from around the state together to explore majors in engineering and computer science at Clemson University. Participants hear from campus representatives and attend informational sessions regarding their major of interest. Students also have a chance to meet current PEER & WISE mentors to hear their Clemson story.

Stem group picture


STEM Day is a program partnering with schools and organizations in the Upstate of South Carolina to bring middle school students to campus. Participants engage in hands-on STEM activities with Clemson faculty and students. The goal of the day is to introduce the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), to underrepresented students in the area.

Middles school participants

STEM Connections

STEM Connections represents an excellent opportunity for elementary, middle, and high school students to recognize the connection between engineering and science and their lives. Meetings and tours can be established to help individuals explore the importance and relevance of engineers and scientists in the modern world. This experience can assist children in exploring this connection.

Outreach Opportunities

Additional opportunities are provided by individual departments and programs. Tours, school visits, and professional leadership webinars all extend community engagement and growth.

Upcoming Events

The College of Engineering, Computing and Applied Sciences and the University regularly hold outreach events throughout the year for K-12 and adults. These events include virtual and in-person, throughout the state.
