Education is a natural aspect of the Student Dust Counter (SDC) effort because of its reliance on graduate and undergraduate students in all aspects of the instrument's development.

The instrument team is also dedicated to extending data from the SDC into K-12 classrooms through the incorporation of the SDC Data Viewer into fully packaged and tested lessons that middle school teachers can use in their classrooms. See Lessons for more information.
