Our mission is to learn together while building a community that elevates the importance of sharing Earth, ocean, and atmospheric sciences outside the traditional classroom and laboratory environments.


We cultivate curiosity and knowledge about Earth, ocean, and atmospheric systems and their human dimensions through authentic, respectful collaborations that benefit learners and communities of all backgrounds. We support scientists conducting STEAM outreach and engagement by identifying and removing barriers to their participation. We inspire wonder and learning that honors the diversity of multiple ways of knowing.

Goals (direct and indirect)

  • Connect with society about Earth, ocean and atmospheric (EOA) sciences in a reciprocal relationship. Inform our science inquiry by understanding the interests and needs of communities.  Share the parts of our sciences that communities care about and are interested in.

  • Support fellow scientists and practitioners and learn together through our outreach and engagement efforts. Enjoy each other's company in regular, casual meetings.
  • Elevate the importance and value of STEM engagement within the college and university.
  • Recognize that access to higher education and EOA sciences is a social justice issue and actively work to remove barriers to participation. Expand what we think of as science and who benefits from it.
  • Support student success outside of the traditional classroom, including field experiences and science teaching opportunities.
  • Inspire an interest in the EOA sciences in all communities, including K-12 students, by developing relevant content and formats, demystifying our sciences, and humanizing scientists.
