Science Outreach

When I was 13 I started volunteering at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. I have been doing science outreach ever since. I have done stage shows, classes, and many public observatory nights. I find that working with the public reminds me what I find so exciting about planetary science. Answering questions forces me to think about problems in new ways and challenge things I take for granted. If you would like me to give a talk or have another opportunity you can contact me here
