iPLEX Presents Science Education Program at AGU

January 5, 2015

At the 2014 fall meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco, more than 24,000 students and researchers met to discuss topics in the Earth and Space Sciences.  However, the latest scientific discoveries were not the only issues presented.  iPLEX's own Ivy Curren shared our organization's recent innovations in science education and outreach that include streamlining the process of scheduling community outreach events and keeping better tabs on UCLA volunteers through online forms and databases.  Informal and formal educators caniPLEX Presents Science Education Program at AGU
