Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) Office of Communications and Outreach
LASP is a solar system science research institution where spacecraft and spacecraft instrumentation are built to support our research mission. The researchers explore planets and planetary bodies, the sun, space weather, and Earth's atmosphere and magnetic field. The Office of Communications and Outreach at LASP creates programming surrounding the research efforts...
Latino History Project
The Latino History Project helps to correct the widespread omission of Latinos from local history books and school curriculums. It began in 2013 as a community-based initiative in Boulder County to document and make known the previously invisible experiences of Latinos in Longmont, Lafayette, and Boulder over the past century.

Learning and Teaching Computer Science at EPIC
Children from non-dominant backgrounds often do not participate in high-quality computer science education. If they engage in computer science education, the curricula typically focus on low-level practices such as keyboarding or practices that are lacking in personal relevance. This limits their capacity for meaningful learning. It further limits their capacity for participating in and setting the terms for conversations about what problems are worth addressing and what kinds of solutions are appropriate...

Lens on Climate Change
“Lens on Climate Change” is a program for middle and high school students in Colorado. Students produce film that feature how climate change affects their life in Colorado. Students are mentored by science graduate students from CU Boulder and students from the Colorado Film School throughout the production of their own films. Participants will learn how to define their own topic, write a compelling script, design their video, interview scientists and stakeholders, collect relevant and supportive footage (B-roll) and edit their own video...
LISA 2020: Building Statistical Analysis and Data Science Capacity
Statistics and data science are crucial for enabling and accelerating research, informing business and policy decisions, and transforming evidence into action for development. The LISA 2020 program trains local statisticians and data scientists in developing countries to collaborate with researchers, businesses, and policy makers. Our goal is to create a network of 20 statistical collaboration laboratories (“stat labs”) in developing countries by the year 2020...
