Undergraduate Research Lab (UResearch) Outreach


Outreach events at UResearch are part of the formal coursework. Since 2012, UResearch members have served more than 4,300 children and families exploring basic science and animal diversity. In 2014, UResearch has partnered with Columbus Metroparks and the Ohio State Planetarium to broaden its outreach programs. Our current programs consist of "Beetles under the Stars",  "Science with Beetles", and "Amazing Bugs." We also work with high school juniors and seniors to equip them with research methods, design, and data literacy skills.
