Broader Impact Programs

NRAO has many programs that reach out to its broader communities, professional, educational, and lay. Some programs provide research experiences for K-12 teachers and students, and training for K-12 and undergraduate science teachers. Other programs provide hands-on training for the next generation of scientists and engineers from the secondary to post-doctoral levels. These programs are delivered in communities in West Virginia, Virginia, and New Mexico that have substantial populations of underrepresented groups. - Action Plan for Broadening Participation, 2009
