Outreach

Inspiring the next generation of scientists

The broad GGI community of faculty, staff, postdoctoral researchers, and students strives to make their science accessible to the general public. We engage the community in varied and meaningful ways, including writing popular science books, developing online resources, training extension specialists, making K-12 classroom visits, running enriching afterschool programs, carrying out hands-on museum demos, giving illuminating science cafe talks, organizing citizen-science projects, offering teacher training workshops, leading summer science camps and providing diverse internships opportunities to students and teachers. Our goals are to make genetic and genomic sciences, from botany to biomedicine to evolution, accessible and exciting, involve the public in impactful research projects, and inspire the next generation of geneticists.
