CU Science Discovery is proud to be a part of Portal to the Public, a national network of organizations that connect public audiences with scientists working in their communities.

Pop Network

As a member of the POP network, we train scientists of all disciplines and skill levels to communicate their research to public audiences. Participating scientists morph into CU Science Ambassadors as they design hands-on activities and subsequently present them at public events.

Here are the 2016-2017 CU Science Ambassadors and the disciplines they represent:

  • Biran Aguado, CU Boulder, Chemical and Biological Engineering
  • Clemence Bacquet, CU Boulder, Aerospace Engineering
  • Megan Harries, CU Boulder, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry
  • Matt Hartsock, CU Boulder, Psychology and Neuroscience
  • Stephanie Moon and Brianna Van Treeck, CU Boulder, Biochemistry
  • Brigitta Rongstad, CU Boulder, Department of Geological Sciences
  • Michael Rush, CU Boulder, Environmental Engineering
