Outreach and public engagement are essential to sharing our research with the general public, by interacting and listening in order to generate mutual benefit.

Hawk-Eyes on Science and Hawk-Eyes in Space Outreach Programs

For more than 15 years, Hawk-Eyes on Science and Hawk-Eyes in Space have brought the excitement of science demonstrations to Iowans of all ages.

These successful and well-received outreach programs are led by dozens of department faculty, staff, and undergraduate and graduate students, who give 40-60 demonstrations each year both on and off-campus. Their combined efforts have made Hawk-Eyes on Science one of the nation’s premier university-based science outreach programs, one of a small handful of programs to receive both the World Year of Physics and LaserFest grants from the American Physical Society. The programs are supported in part by grants from the General Electric Corporation and the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) Bauder fund.
