National Outreach

Outreach event

The PSFC collaborates with other laboratories and institutions on educational events. An annual Teacher’s Day (to educate teachers about plasmas) and Plasma Sciences Expo (to which teachers can bring their students) is a tradition at each year’s American Physical Society Division of Plasma Physics meeting. For Fall 2023, this event will be in-person in Denver, Colorado. The PSFC is also involved with educational efforts sponsored by the Coalition for Plasma Science (CPS), an organization formed by members of universities and national laboratories to promote understanding of the field of plasma science. The Coalition does outreach to Congress, the general public and plasma-related institutions.
