Building a Regional Science Education Infrastructure: The Accomplishments of the Sanford Science Education Center
Inverness Research
For the past five years, the education and outreach effort of the Sanford Underground Research Facility has been supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to plan, develop, prototype, and prioritize the suite of educational outreach activities of the lab. Now known as the Sanford Science Education Center (SSEC), education and outreach activities that showcase the science, engineering, and technology of Sanford Lab are offered through partnerships with the Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center and Black Hills State University. Throughout all of its work funded through the NSF planning grant, the SSEC staff has explored many different modes of sharing the unique science and engineering of the Sanford Underground Research Facility. Inverness Research has been the external evaluator on the planning grant from the National Science Foundation. This report highlights the accomplishments of the SSEC and the return on the investment of the planning grant funds.
