Outreach

The College of Science offers a wide range of programs on scientific subjects to train educators, inform and engage the public in scientific endeavors, and support the community. From ownership of Biosphere 2 and Tumamoc Hill to Flandrau, the College of Science actively promotes awareness and knowledge of scientific issues by making programs accessible to the public. Astronomy camps at UA Science Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter provide K-12 students with the chance to learn more about math, astronomy, engineering and physics. The UA Science Lecture Series brings awareness of scientific developments and studies to the public through presentations on many topics. School teachers attend STEM workshops and conferences that help them to be better teachers of science, technology, engineering and math. The geotourism collaboration that includes Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, Kartchner Caverns State Park, UA Biosphere 2, and UA Mt. Lemmon SkyCenter brings together several science-focused organizations for the benefit of the community.
