Resources for educators
Contact information for the E&O staff is at the bottom of the page.

The Education and Outreach program is a collaborative venture between Sanford Underground Research Facility and Black Hills State University. Our purpose is to use the excitement and promise of deep underground science and engineering to inspire and engage students, educators and the wider community.

Education and Outreach staff have developed an array of original K-12 education resources— including phenomena-based curriculum units, school presentations, field trip experiences, and teacher professional development opportunities that showcase SURF and its experiments. By making connections, and learning with and from each other, we believe that we can advance equity and excellence in STEM education for all students.
