Education Personnel

LASP education and outreach programming is led by the LASP Office of Communications & Outreach (OCO). We support LASP in several areas:

  • External communications to increase understanding of LASP science and capabilities
  • Education and outreach programming and professional development workshops for K-12 teachers and students, university students, the media, and the general public concerning LASP science, space missions, and activities

Through our in-house experience and our extensive network of regional and national collaborators, we connect LASP scientists and engineers with a wide range of public audiences. If you are a potential collaborator and would like to get in touch with OCO about a new or existing project, please contact Erin Wood, Interim OCO Manager (see below). For information about our programming, contact epomail@lasp.colorado.edu.
