Science Education

We may be accustomed to learning science from our teachers at school, yet science education happens in other exciting venues as well, including museums and zoos. In addition, other organizations, such as universities, companies, non-profit organizations, and government agencies are often eager to communicate scientific issues with the local community. These diverse avenues of learning provide myriad opportunities to work as a science educator and help others learn about genomics and genetics.
