Early-career scientists often seek help in generating ideas for successful broader impacts for proposals, in finding reliable sources of material for their class exercises, and in finding effective data tools relevant for their research and teaching. The goal of this mini-workshop is to introduce several popular geoscience data resources and broader impact strategies, and to use the GeoPRISMS-hosted MARGINS mini-lessons as a vehicle to address all three aspects.

Hands-on demonstrations of useful data resources from the IEDA, IRIS and UNAVCO data facilities will be tied to science through examples chosen from the MARGINS mini-lesson collection. Ideas for broader impacts will be discussed with an emphasis on compelling ways to broaden one’s reach. Participants will also have time to explore their own questions and ideas for data-rich teaching opportunities, and gain experience with the data tools.
