Michigan Tech Mind Trekkers logo

Mind Trekkers is a flagship program of Michigan Technological University's Center for Educational Outreach. Undergraduate and graduate students become Mind Trekker guides, traveling across the country to deliver high-energy, hands-on, STEM demonstrations to K-12 students, inspiring them to pursue post-secondary education. Have you been inside a bubble? Can you skewer a balloon without popping it? Have you ever played a piano made of bananas? Let Mind Trekkers be your guide as you explore the excitement of STEM.

"The best part is the enthusiasm the Michigan Tech students have for the subject matter and their excitement about geeking out to our middle schoolers. I think its great modeling on top of content delivery."
