How to Work With Us

Multiple contracting methods allow ORAU to customize science education programs for diverse range of clients

Science Education Program Participant

As our nation’s workforce ages, and it also becomes increasingly difficult to attract students into scientific and technical fields, creating a pool of talent from which to develop future science and technology leaders becomes critical. That’s what we do—serve education needs at all levels from K-12 through faculty and postdoctoral researchers. We also provide needs assessment and recruitment services, as well as workforce analysis and program evaluation.

If you need science education and workforce development support for your agency’s or industry’s workforce needs, or if you are interested in creating new or taking advantage of existing research participation programs, internships, scholarships or fellowships, we want to talk to you.
