What is this "Scientific Education Outreach" of which you speak?
A few of us were throwing around some ideas over lunch about how to promote and assist with science education in the community- both Durham and beyond. It was noted that various individuals and groups around Duke are doing things in this area, and that it might be helpful to have a webpage or pages both to link to resources, and for discussion, communication, and brainstorming.
- Of particular interest (to JDT anyway, who's writing this) is getting more girls into Computer Science.
- what age to target? doesn't need to be just one, but waiting till high school may be too late. Jr. high?
- ongoing programs vs. one time events
- Alice programming language is a great resource
Wikis are dynamic entities. No offense will be taken if anyone does some "gardening" on what's here. e.g. the Random thoughts section above could be moved to a set of pages with discussions for different topics. Resources can be its own page. Have at it!
