It’s time to start planning for the next step. Whether that’s the next grade or moving onto college, DISCUS can help you succeed…

Schoolchildren in a science classFor those of you moving onto college, DISCUS wants to help by letting you know about special programs at colleges and universities across the country. Many of these programs are designed to help a student population that is continually increasing in diversity. Most of these programs are targeted toward students having limited English proficiency (LEP) or those who are underrepresented in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields.

On the DISCUS site, you can find a bunch of neat activities and experiments to perform at home or in school. Visit our Activity Corner to find new and easy ways to enjoy the mysteries of science.

We have also compiled a list of useful links, tailored for K-12 students that provide information on: preparing for college, succeeding in the classroom, and experiencing science outside of school. Additionally, we always welcome new suggestions about how we can improve our site and offerings to match your needs. To submit comments or questions, click here.

To stay up-to-date on new developments and resources from the DISCUS program, we invite you to register and become a member. We’ll let you know about special events and new site functionality by sending you a semi-monthly newsletter. We will never distribute your personal information to outside parties.
