About Educational Programs

For the big questions—and the relentless questioners.
For the boundless optimists, and the fearless risk-takers.
For the daydreamers, and the obsessive Googlers.
For the continuously curious, and the wide-eyed wonderers. 

The students who come through our doors aren’t just future leaders, scientists, decision-makers and policy-shapers—they’re grand visionaries who truly believe they can change the world.  And you know what? We do, too. 

Through awe-inspiring learning experiences, exciting programs and active outreach, we’re not just bringing STEM to our region—we’re welcoming every middle school, high school, undergraduate and graduate student into our Argonne community. Igniting imaginations. Inspiring connections. And introducing a diverse new generation of STEM game-changers to world-class science—and to their own amazing possibilities. Because we know we’re not just shaping their futures—they’re shaping ours.

Connecting today’s world-class research to tomorrow’s STEM problem solvers

Through our middle school to graduate programming, Argonne Education connects with over 29,000 youth and families at Outreach events, hosts over 4,400 middle and high school students at the Argonne Learning Center and employs over 870 undergraduate and graduate students each year.
