The goal of my outreach is to share my knowledge and increase the accessibility of science topics.
Girls Math and Science Day (Spring 2017-2019) is hosted by the Mid-Michigan Chapter of Graduate Women In Science (GWIS) at MSU where middle-school-aged girls are introduced to the wide spectrum of STEM topics. This event increases the visibility of women scientists and enthusiasm for science and discovery in young girls.
As an undergraduate in San Antonio, I assisted the UTSA SACNAS outreach committee in organizing activities, namely the "Hands-on-Brains" demonstrations. In this demonstration, I taught age ranges from elementary to adults the fundamentals of brain biology. I became a judge for local science fairs and organized lab tours for middle and high school students and teachers. The most rewarding outreach activity I participated in was tutoring children at the Center of Refugee Services. During all of the outreach activities, I learned as much from the children and adults as they learned from me.
