Like its peer institutions and counterparts, SERC engages in a variety of educational and outreach activities. Although SERC is not a degree-granting institution, it hosts undergraduate and graduate students from other institutions who work on the SERC campus and in collaboration with SERC principal investigators. The most important of SERC’s educational activities is its fellowship program, which provides support for graduate students and postdoctoral and senior fellows. The SERC program supports 11 fellows. Like that of STRI, SERC’s contribution to science education therefore rivals or surpasses fellowship support provided by many educational institutions of comparable size. SERC also has an extensive K-12 education program, which brings 10,000 elementary school students and their teachers to the campus each year for an environmental education program.
