We are committed to bringing the community into our science, and sharing our science with the community. Please get in touch if you would like to find out how to get involved!
Research Opportunities for High School Students and K12 Teachers
We participate in the Summer Research Connection (SRC) arranged by the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Outreach (CTLO) here at Caltech. Each summer we have a team of high school students and K12 teachers perform research with us.
If you are interested, contact Mitch Aiken at the CTLO.

We regularly host lab tours for school groups, visitors, and prospective students. Most tours are arranged by the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Outreach or the Undergraduate Admissions Office, but you can also contact us directly.
Talks and Demonstrations for the Public and Schools
We are excited to help bring science to our community through Science Nights, school visits, helping with science/engineering fairs, demonstrations, and more. Many of these events are arranged by the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Outreach, but you can also contact us directly.
We were featured in Pasadena Outlook for our part in helping the Chandler School take a journey to space (without leaving the comfortable confines of Caltech...)

Nick lying to children at the Chandler School about how big that fish was. Not really; we went to the Chandler school after their visit to our lab to follow up on some of the things we talked about.
