The Elementary Outreach Program provides the opportunity for elementary school students to receive supplemental science training through hands-on experiences. The lessons connect to Frederick County Public School (FCPS) curriculum. The program is supported by the NCI at Frederick and its system of support contractors who have entered into a formal partnership agreement with FCPS. Other agencies located on Ft. Detrick have joined the program as well. We encourage our volunteers to take the program to schools in their neighborhoods if they live outside of Frederick County.

If you are a FCPS Elementary School and interested in having the EOP to your class, or, if you would like to learn more about the program, please send an email to eop@ncifcrf.gov.
