The Partnerships for Informal Science Education in the Community (PISEC) program facilitates community partnerships with local schools, connecting CU Boulder mentors with primary and high school students, largely those from groups underrepresented in STEM. Together with their CU mentors, students explore pathways to STEM in an engaging, welcoming, and fun environment.

PISEC is supported by the JILA Physics Frontier Center as part of the National Science Foundation's Broadening Impacts focus, and by the CU Physics Education Research Group and the Center for STEM Learning.
