Science on Wheels connects Missouri citizens with scientists. We partner with organizations across Missouri to give presentations at community events that consist of 3-6 short talks from graduate and postdoctoral researchers. We train our speakers to effectively communicate with nonscientists, which contributes to their development as a scientist while engaging with the people of Missouri.
Our audiences include public elementary schools, alumni associations, rotary clubs, senior living centers, and in particular, rural communities which we access through partnerships with Extension. By connecting people with scientists and university research in an informal setting, we aim to promote awareness, interest, and support of STEM while contributing to the Land Grant Mission. We are always looking to connect with new partners and new audiences in creative ways.
