Outreach and Tours

Magic Planet in ISTB 4

 

SESE is training the next generation of explorers and citizen scientists. We engage the minds of our students, and by making our research available to all, we also engage the minds of our community. Through a variety of informal science education and public outreach (E/PO) activities, teacher workshops, and partnerships with local schools, we are increasing the science literacy of our community. 

Igniting Curiosity

Groups interested in visiting SESE should schedule a tour as many of our facilities have limits on how many visitors can be accommodated. Tours must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. Our new building ISTB 4 offers several interactive exhibits on the first two floors which are open during normal business hours.
