Teaching SMART (Science, Math, And Research Technology) is a student-run volunteer program that connects local communities with undergraduate and graduate students at the University of Minnesota. Teaching SMART aims to expand science and math education in communities around the University of Minnesota and encourage University of Minnesota students to take part in this endeavor. Our partnership with the Bell Museum of Natural History enables our volunteers to train with science outreach professionals and gain access to a host of educational tools.
