CLIMATE/OCEAN/ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCE/ESS OUTREACH OPEN HOUSE

PCC, Oceanography, Atmospheric Science and Earth and Space Science graduate students, staff and faculty involved in outreach and informal education in a multitude of ways are invited to an informal gathering on Tuesday, April 28 at 4:30 in OSB 425.

This is the first event of its kind, designed to acknowledge and thank those engaged in outreach, to provide an opportunity to learn what the different programs offer, to see some of the hands-on tools used, and to hear what young and old staff and faculty have to say about the relevance of outreach involvement in their career and job satisfaction. Learn what kinds of activities the four groups are asked to respond to and how you can get involved.

Some old and new faces that will be on hand: Chris Bretherton (PCC, Atmos), Tom Ackerman (JISAO, Atmos), Richard Gammon (Ocean), Katharine Huntington (ESS), Tansy Clay (CoSEE), Dargan Frierson (Atmos), and Julie Keister (Ocean).

Pizza provided, thus RSVP needed by MONDAY, APRIL 27. E-mail uwpcc@u.washington.edu with your RSVP. Co-organized by outreach representatives Emily Fischer and Lucas Harris for Atmospheric Sciences, Alison Rogers and Lia Slemons for Oceanography and Paul Hezel and Miriam Bertram for the Program on Climate Change.
