Earth science literacy and public awareness of science.
Eileen’s research and outreach activities are focused on engaging the public, particularly K-12 students and their teachers, in Earth science.
We wish to empower educators by developing effective field activities, hands-on interactive classroom programs and apps, and by providing teacher professional development workshops and pre-service teacher education in Earth science.
