USC Viterbi STEM Educational Outreach Programs (STEM-EOP) is a program of the University of Southern California Viterbi School of Engineering. STEM-EOP’s mission is to increase the number of educationally-disadvantaged and historically-underrepresented PreK-14 students who matriculate into four-year universities and graduate with degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). STEM-EOP engages PreK-14 students throughout Southern California in authentic STEM experiences through hands-on, problem-based learning projects, experiments and activities as well as interactions with STEM professionals, faculty and peer mentors. STEM-EOP also offers teacher professional development in STEM. In addition, STEM-EOP collaborates with other USC departments and outside organizations to enhance STEM education across the greater Southern California area.
