The GEC enjoys dissecting information on entomological issues such as natural history, insect ecology, insect behavior, conservation biology, and insect pest management.  Club membership is diverse.  Faculty, undergraduate, and graduate members represent many backgrounds including forestry, plant pathology, weed science, fisheries and wildlife biology, biology, zoology, entomology, microbiology, liberal arts, and several other disciplines.


Education and Outreach Center

The College of Natural Sciences Education & Outreach Center is an incubator for innovation in STEM education. The EOC serves both CSU and K-12 students and faculty through a wide variety of programs. A common thread that weaves through all EOC programs is increasing the quality, quantity, and diversity of students in STEM disciplines. Particular emphasis is on finding new ways to promote scientific creativity and innovation, attributes essential for global competitiveness in the 21st century. Many of the EOC programs focus on providing authentic scientific research experiences for both learners and teachers.


Little Shop of Physics

Little Shop of Physic (LSOP) is a group of science educators and science students based out of Colorado State University. Their goal is to make science accessible and teach people that science is something anyone can do. Over the years, LSOP has grown into a dynamic science outreach program that works with teachers, schools, and students of all ages. The VW bus that started off the program 25 years ago is now a 12-passenger van that takes over 100 interactive exhibits to every school. Over 20, 000 students get the LSOP experience every year. The LSOP program offerings include: school visits, teacher resources, teacher workshops, as well as Everyday Science shows, podcasts, and classroom kits.


NoCo Math Oval (Northern Colorado Math Oval)

The NoCo Math Oval is a math circle that meets once every 3-4 weeks during the academic year. It is primarily aimed at middle school and high school students, though math enthusiasts of all ages are welcome. Meetings are 1.5-2 hours in length and cover some combination of fun advanced
(non-curricular) math topics, hands-on activities, competition preparation, and recreational math, depending on the interests of the presenter (typically a graduate student or faculty member from the Math Department). This is a free program — just check the website for upcoming meeting dates.
