Scientific and Environmental Literacy and Engagement
In addition to conducting impactful science, DRI also sees environmental education, engagement, and outreach as a core component of our mission. From DRI’s K-12 educational initiatives such as Science Alive and Nevada Robotics to programs helping advance scientific interest, literacy, and engagement such as Science Distilled or our many citizen science programs, DRI is investing in increasing scientific knowledge and understanding across multiple constituencies. Support for these programs help make progress on our vision to create a world in which trust between scientists and the public form the basis for a more sustainable and resilient environment for all people to live, grow, and prosper.
