337 LeConte, UC Berkeley
Presented by Coalition for Education and Outreach
Why should science outreach be an essential component of research labs and scientist training?
In this session, we focus on how to develop an outreach activity that highlights the focal research of your lab group or program.
What should you consider when developing activities, and what resources are available to help you succeed?
Panelists from two campus lab groups will provide insights on best practices for engaging audiences and lessons learned from their experiences.
- David Whitney, Professor, Department of Psychology
- Brian Wang, PhD student, Sarpong Lab, Department of Chemistry
- Traci Grzymala, Community Resources for Science

We are based at UC Berkeley, but our members hail from all over the Bay Area and beyond. Our mission is to further professional development, facilitate best practices, and encourage information exchange among STEM educators.
