Our department sends small teams of students/faculty to Science nights at local schools. We put together teams to help at numerous on-campus events including "Discovery Days" and "Discovering the Scientist Within". We also visit local classrooms when teachers contact us and ask for a specific lesson. Student volunteers become better at communicating science, build connections with other students in our program, get to know faculty outside of the classroom, and demonstrate their commitment to science in a way that is visible on CVs and letters of recommendation.
