Brian Hynek at work

I have taught classes covering the Earth and beyond for middle school through graduate students. This includes developing and teaching chemistry and physics courses at an inner-city high school in San Antonio, TX, astronomy classes at St. Louis Community College and undergraduate and graduate courses in planetary geology, GIS, astrobiology, and natural disasters at the University of Colorado.

Recent courses taught at the University of Colorado:


Natural Disasters and Geologic Hazards
GIS for Geologists
Extraterrestrial Life


Graduate Planetary Seminar: Mars Curiosity Results
Planetary Surfaces and Interiors
Planetary Field Geology

Additional teaching/outreach in Colorado:

- High school mentor, New Vista High School, Boulder
- Science fair judge for numerous local high schools
- I give roughly a half dozen public lectures around the area each year.
