Many funding agencies now require impacts that extend beyond an academic audience to benefit broader society. ICAT’s Center for Educational Networks and Impacts (CENI) collaborates with university researchers to develop and evaluate educational outreach initiatives that are mutually beneficial to researchers and the public. CENI leverages an established network of formal and informal educators from organizations such as preK-12 school districts, museums, and the Virginia Tech Science Festival to help faculty share their research with public audiences. Associate Director of Broader Impacts Dr. Chelsea Lyles shares processes and support available to Virginia Tech researchers, while Gabriel Isaacman-VanWertz, Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Jonathan Bradley, University Libraries, provide highlights from successfully funded collaborations.
