Attendees can submit questions at registration and live during the webinar
Below is the significance statement of the paper published on February 6, 2023, in eNeuro and authored by Kaitlin M. Laws, Ent Natale, Edward A. Waddell, Jamie R. Shuda, and Greg J. Bashaw
Outreach programming creates connections between scientists and their communities while expanding students’ perception of what science entails and who practices it. As such, outreach programming can act as one part of a multipronged approach to diversify the scientific workforce. To build sustainable, effective science outreach curricula, scientists should seek input from both teachers in their communities and experienced outreach educators. Here, we present our outreach program, DrosoPHILA, as a model for such partnerships. By explaining the program’s development and making our supporting materials available, we hope to facilitate the creation of similar programs across different subject areas.
