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 incorporates the focal research of your lab group or program. What do you need to consider when developing activities and what resources are available to help you succeed? Panelists from campus lab groups will provide insights on best practices for engaging audiences and lessons learned from their experiences. Presenters include Professor David Whitney, Department of Psychology, and Traci Grzymala, Community Resources for Science.
