Outreach

Scientists have a great opportunity to engage the public and K-12 communities in the excitement and usefulness of science, and to broaden this engagement to groups that are traditionally underrepresented in the sciences. Here are some outreach programs we’ve developed:

Hot Science – Cool Talks Outreach Series                         Scientist in Residence Program

Caves: A Window into the Edwards Aquifer             An online field experience in Inner Space Cavern

900 participants at Hot Science – Cool Talk by New Horizons Mission leader Alan Stern express their unanimity via hand gestures in demanding that Pluto be granted its rightful status as the ninth planet.
