The Czimczik lab is involved in several outreach activities. Please contact us if you would like to become involved or would like an Earth System Scientist at your next event. Recent events include:
Earth Science Day
On April 29, 2019, we organized the 2nd Earth Science Day at Vista Verde K-8. Interactive displays let visitors explore rocks and minerals, discover how soils recycle our waste and clean our drinking water, and understand how carbon dioxide gas in the atmosphere affects the oceans. Visitors connect with Earth Scientists and see the technology used to study our amazing planet.
On April 6, 2019, we participated in UCI’s 1st ever Alumni Day for the School of Physical Sciences. We gave lab tours and research presentations and reconnected with our amazing former students. We’d love to see you there next time!
Fall and, or Spring Quarter
Middle school students visit the campus (incl. undergraduate housing) and spend two one-hour sessions in active research labs doing hands-on science activities with UCI faculty and students. We offer 1-hour hands-on sessions on air pollution or soils & climate change that include an outside activity and lab tour. If your school is interested in participating in our Laboratory Experiments and Activities in the Physical Sciences (LEAPS), please contact Lori Greene: email@example.com
Czimczik lab members can volunteer for presentations at local middle schools and various educational organizations via the Climate Literacy Empowerment and Inquiry (CLEAN) organization. Our graduate students are also actively involved in CLEAN leadership and the design and development of carbon cycle curriculum for six grade science classes. If you are an Earth System Science student or researcher at UCI and would like to become involved, please contact CLEAN.
