Sharing the News
A number of venues provide opportunities to get feedback from other scientists and educators about your work, share the lessons you have learned, disseminate the materials you have developed, and contribute to the body of knowledge about science teaching and learning. Only by publicizing K-12 outreach and engagement work will interested individuals be able to avoid reinventing the wheel and lay a solid foundation for a unified expansion of the profession and discipline of K-12 outreach, engagement, and partnership.
