Broader Impacts II
Since my last post, I've actually become even more excited about broader impacts. In a recent lab meeting, the group decided it would be an awesome idea to create a page for the departmental website that outlined volunteer, outreach, and diversity-increasing activities. Not only would people have more ideas for their grant proposals, but I think people would actually be more inspired to get out of the lab! My advisor and the lab group will be oraganizing a 'participatory' seminar on the topic to be conducted in spring. Can't wait to post an update on that!
