Invite UCLA volunteers to your school

Explore Your Universe

Are you an educator or youth group leader interested in sharing the excitement of astronomy and planetary science with your students?  Submit a request to have volunteers visit your school or apply to bring your class to UCLA.  Our outreach events include hands-on activities for all ages ranging from building bottle rockets to gazing through solar telescopes.

Our list of outreach activities details the hands-on science demos that can be brought to your classroom.  For more specific information about any of these activities and how to apply, visit our request an outreach event page or contact .

Outreach visits are sponsored by a collaboration between the UCLA Institute for Planets and Exoplanets, AstronomyLive!, the Department of Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences, the Department of Physics and Astronomy, and the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences.
