Researchers from our lab participate in outreach events here at the University of Wyoming as well as at other events and conferences. These outreach efforts help to promote interest in science, and further scientific awareness in our community. We have developed educational programs that help make our research accessable for students from every educational level. The goal is to inform students about the energy crisis, and how scientific research can help us to solve this problem. These programs have been run at venues like the Women in Science Conference at UW and solar enrichment workshops at the Wyoming State Fair. Below you can download powerpoint presentations used in these workshops.
