Augsburg Informal Ed

Program Type: Informal Education

This activity consists of the annual two-day Sverdrup Visiting Scientist Program (in January 2017), including meetings and a colloquium with undergraduates, faculty, and members of the larger Twin Cities academic community, and a public presentation. This is one of the very few public events in the Twin Cities that gives visibility to the MNSGC. We also encourage faculty from other colleges and universities, the public, and middle and high school teachers and students, to attend these lectures. As in the past, this Program brings a scientist of national stature to the Twin Cities each year. Augsburg also engages in public outreach through the Making: Small to Big program which encourages Augsburg students and faculty to share their making skills with the public, K-12 educators, and K-12 students through the Twin Cities.
