The PFC and JQI fellows, postdocs, and students actively engage our community and the broader public in science.The PFC supports traveling lectures, where members visit colleges to talk about research. We have experience with all age groups K-12 through undergraduate. Examples of events include guest lectures, career days, assemblies, and individual classroom visits catered to fit science curriculum.
We also provide on-site tours on an individual basis.
Please contact Emily Edwards at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange for our scientists to visit. We are flexible and will work with you to build a presentation that meets your needs.
