This is a recording of a webinar on September 9, 2020. School outreach is a critical way through which you can play a vital role in engaging younger students in the excitement of your research. However, it can be difficult to know where to start as a researcher, graduate student, or practitioner who has not worked in classrooms or with teachers. In this recorded webinar led by Jennifer Chavez-Miller, you will learn how to reach out and partner with educators on public programming, how to foster effective educator-researcher collaborations, and how you can improve your communcaition skills for younger audiences. Jennifer will share her expertise of collaborations from over 18 years as a public school educator, including research trips to Svalbard and Finland, and a recent National Geographic funded education project Vamos Explorar: Conserving and Protecting New Mexico's Wild Places.
