We believe that people deserve the opportunity to learn about the the world around them. And we believe that it should be fun. We aim to conduct engaging earth-science education to inspire curiosity and motivate more young people to find and pursue their passions in science.
WHAT WE DO
Rockin' Out is a K-12 volunteer-based outreach program at the Department of Earth and Space Sciences at the University of Washington (UW).
Our team sends UW undergraduate- and graduate-student volunteers to schools in the greater Seattle area, as well as host school groups on campus. We teach lessons and run hands-on demos about topics related to all things earth and space.
Topics we love to share include earthquakes, geomorphology, glaciers, climate, rocks, and minerals.
Rockin’ Out is dedicated to promoting justice, equity, diversity, and inclusivity in all activities, where people of different races, ethnicities, heritages, sexual orientations, gender identities, ability levels, economic statuses, faiths, and geographical settings can learn and teach science. We aim to welcome new and experienced people into our program of scientific inquiry and education, promote an inclusive environment for all, and continually transform our own programming to meet these goals.
