Outreach Programs

The Center for Imaging Science has an active, nationwide educational outreach program. The goal of the program is to raise awareness of the many opportunities available in the field of imaging science by working cooperatively with educators to enhance the learning experience for their students. Some of our offerings are available to educators outside the Rochester area through the use of online learning technologies. Please click on the links below for more information.
