Outreach Highlights

Nearly 5000 Take Part in CEES Outreach Programs! 


The 2018/2019 Academic Year has been a busy one for CEES!  More than 4900 people participated in Center activities at 13 venues.  CEES attended events both large and small - and every size in between - to educate the public on a variety of environmental science and energy-themed topics. 




The 2018/2019 academic year has been a time of transition for CEES.  The Center bid farewell to its Education Specialist, Sam Ansaldi, who left the Center to pursue other opportunities.  Sam is now the Director of Education at ITEC, an organization focused on STEM programming.  (Congratulations Sam!)
