Center for Pre-College Outreach

About CPCO

The Center for Pre-College Outreach (CPCO) is made up of three flagship programs working simultaneously to encourage and inspire K-12 students through outreach. CPCO consists of Michigan Tech Summer Youth Programs, Mind Trekkers Roadshow and College Access Programs. Our programs invite students from across the United States and abroad to dive into STEM intentionally and purposefully. Our College Access programs offer project-based experiences for local youth in schools and on campus. Then our Summer Youth Programs provides a platform for more than 1,000 students from across the world to become fully immersed in a field and explore future career paths. Mind Trekkers, our mobile roadshow that also has a wide reach, showcases STEM in action for hundreds of thousands of people. These programs not only introduce youth to the fundamentals of STEM-they actually enable the students to be scientists, mathematicians, and engineers. Some students then come to Michigan Tech where they continue their STEM education.
