The Elementary Outreach Program provides the opportunity for elementary school students
in the Frederick County Public School System to receive supplemental science training
through hands-on experiences in the classroom.
Volunteer teams of employees from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) at Frederick,
including its contractors and Fort Detrick, provide experiences involving scientific
expertise and equipment not normally available within the elementary schools in
Frederick County. The lessons are planned to complement the school curriculum and
are coordinated with the administrators of the school system. The opportunity to
enlighten the students about careers in scientific research is an important aspect
of the program. The volunteers are from both administrative and scientific backgrounds
to let the students know that a career in science does not always mean being a bench
