The physics education research group is deeply involved in outreach efforts to engage a wide variety of groups in improving physics education and science education more generally. Our outreach efforts include working with teachers in the south Florida through the Fizmo group, and through workshops organized by Miami-Dade County Public Schools. We provide opportunities for high school students to visit the physics department through the Physics Department Open House. All outreach efforts are geared toward deepening the engagement in physics with stakeholders in the community.
