Are you interested in helping to turn high school students on to science? EEB graduate student Katherine Crocker is looking for participants for a local science education outreach project.
Science teachers at Ann Arbor’s Huron High School are really interested in having graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty give guest talks to show students the relevance of science outside the classroom. They're looking for 20 - 40 minute, high-school level talks relating your research to class material.Their secondary interest is in lab tours.
If you're interested (in giving talks, helping coordinate lab tours, or helping to record talks for digital access), please fill in this short survey (less than two minutes). Crocker will compile the information in a spreadsheet for the HHS science teachers, who may contact you. If you're concerned about time commitment, you can partner with others whose research relates to yours so that you can participate at a level convenient to you (either splitting the sections or recording your talk).
“This is a great opportunity to practice talking about your research, and to do science outreach!” said Crocker. Please pass the information along to anyone else who might be interested.
