In addition to research, many members of the GRIDlab are actively involved in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) education and outreach!

Kaitlyn is highly active in science outreach and education. On campus, she is the special events coordinator for the Neuroscience Community Outreach Group, the outreach organization of the Graduate Program in Neuroscience. She is also a Science Communication Fellow at Pacific Science Center, where she participates in museum events like Meet a Scientist weekends and special lectures including Science Cafe and Science in the City. In summer of 2016, she developed and coordinated guest lectures for a high school level Neural Engineering course for the UW STEM Upward Bound program. This course will be offered again in 2017, and posted as a free online open course in fall 2017.
