Science Outreach

I've been teaching about the Earth System and Chemistry for a long time and doing science demonstrations in schools since my children were young.  I currently give presentations on climate change to general audiences and K-12 students in the Baltimore Area.  If you're interested in having me speak with your group or class, please contact me through the form below.  I do these programs on my own time and charge no fees.  For these reasons, I cannot necessarily fulfill every request I receive, but I will try to direct you to other resources as well.

Let's Talk Climate Change with Dr. Elizabeth E. Dahl presentation request.
