CPLC Bilingual Science Education Program

    For 4 years, from Fall 2013 until Spring 2017, the Center has successfully led outreach in Spanish and English at 2 area dual language schools through our Bilingual Engineering and Science Outreach Program (BESO). Inorder to further expand the opportunities for Center students and postdocs to participate in education and outreach programming, and thereby build their communication and teaching skills, we will expand our workto include programs in languages that more fully reflect the linguistic and cultural diversity of both the CPLC students and postdocs, as well as our local community. This includes part-time programs (so-called Transitional Bilingual Programs) in 5 area elementary, middle, and high schools offered in French, Korean, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Spanish, as well as English.
