Ayanna, as a fellow in the Professors for the Future program, helped coordinate a symposium titled, “Science Outreach: How to Increase the Impact of Your Work,” on May 8th, 2019 as a part of her PFTF project. Invited speakers from UC Davis and the Bay Area shared their experiences performing STEM outreach in hopes to inspire an audience of future outreach coordinators. The event was a great success with both experienced and novice attendees learning helpful information.
