An important part of the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering’s mission is to cultivate and engage our communities. Our outreach staff works with students of all ages to provide support for STEM activities, learning, and partnerships across Colorado.
Now hosting School Tours and Visits!
Frequently Asked Questions
When do I need to request a visit?
School visits need to be requested at least 6 weeks in advance. Requests are processed on a first come, first serve basis. We can only accommodate one school visit per date.
Do you provide lunches or meals?
CSU is unable to provide lunches for school visits. Visitors can pack their own lunch, or eat in the food court of the Lory Student Center. We recommend $10 per student.
If I choose an activity, does that mean it's always available?
The selection of the event or activity does not confirm its availability. An email will be sent with a follow up and confirmation of the day and itinerary.
How many students can be accommodated?
School visits need to be a minimum of 10 students.
For larger groups, we can pair lab demonstrations with other activities into multiple sections. Laboratories can accommodate a maximum of 20 people at a time.
Are there days or weeks when tours are not available?
Tours may not be available on University holidays and/or closings.
Student interaction activities will not be available from May 1–12 in consideration of finals week.
If you have questions about specific days or times, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Is there a required student-to-chaperone ratio?
Yes, Colorado State University requires a 12:1 (minor : adult) ratio.
We want to help educators from Colorado, the west, and around the world with their efforts to teach STEM to their students. This section features information for teachers, counselors, and other educators who need resources to be successful.
The ENcourage Engineering Math Program is a summer program intended to help incoming engineering students who did not place “calculus ready” through the math placement tool to improve pre-calculus math skills.
Students will take the math placement tool to find out if they are ready to take calculus in their first year, with the possibility of placing out of the pre-calculus modules and into calculus.
