Public Outreach Programs
The College of Science presents free public outreach events year-round to serve the university community and the general public. Our goal is to increase public awareness of scientific research and development happening at the U.
Utah and Idaho high school students are invited to campus each fall to attend a day of science-related workshops with science professors and academic advice. This annual event is absolutely free to students, parents and educators. Lunch is provided.
The Frontiers lecture series features eminent scientists and researchers from across the country who are exploring the latest frontiers in their fields. All lectures are free and open to the public, although tickets are required and seating is limited.
The Science Employer Panel brings students and professionals together for an in-depth discussion of the job prospects and internship opportunities available to science graduates. Students get direct access to insider information about a variety of science industries, while panelists get a chance to meet their future employees and share about why their business is a great place to work. Connections made at the Science Employer Panel start new careers, and help drive Utah’s economic engine.
