OSTST-Related Outreach Activities

Edward Zaron (Portland State University, United States)

Event: 2017 Ocean Surface Topography Science Team Meeting

Session: Outreach, Education and Altimetric Data Services

Presentation type: Type Oral

Contribution: PDF file


Two slides are provided which illustrate my OSTST-related outreach activities:

(1) Participation as a "Science Communication Fellow" at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry -- The museum provides short workshops and training in public engagement, in exchange for the opportunities to volunteer at Meet a Scientist and other events at the museum.

(2) Short-term projects with undergraduate students -- Projects with undergraduates at my university engage students and provide them with entry points for research or future study in oceanography. My position as Research Assistant Professor does not normally involve teaching or formal interaction with students, so I typically spend $1000 to $1500 of discretionary funds provided by the university to hire undergraduates to work on short projects throughout the year. One of these students has gone on to participate in the Woods Hole REU program and she is currently considering graduate school in oceanography.
