Public Science Education Programs
Biology Department faculty, graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers volunteer for organizations and participate in a number of events aimed at educating the public about science, including: the Evolution of Food Workshop at the American Museum of Natural History, NOGN (Neuroscience Outreach Group at NYU), and the BioBus.
Some of our graduate students provide free science and math tutoring through Top Honors and The Door.
Our labs serve to enrich science education for students from local schools who come for field trips and our faculty and students also visit schools to give guest lectures. Our faculty and graduate students have donated lab space and served as mentors in science competitions such as the DNA Barcoding Competition and iGEM.
