Office of Science Outreach

Engaging communities with the cutting-edge
science and research performed at Penn State

The Office of Science Outreach works to accomplish our mission by organizing an annual slate of science outreach programs in conjunction with partners across Penn State and our local communities. We also develop resources and services that support ECoS students and faculty in their outreach and engagement with many different audiences.
