Creative Scientific Inquiry Experience

The Creative Scientific Inquiry Experience (CSIE) is a STEM-related program funded by the U.S. Department of Education that connects students with faculty and with community projects through an integrated science curriculum. CSIE also offers a book loan program (for CSIE course textbooks) and free tutoring/mentoring for students.

You can find out about our programs for students and training for faculty, as well as information about Math and Science clubs and national organizations on this site.
