Most of my current and past outreach activities involved volunteering for local community organizations to offer my services in the areas of science, education, and environment.
I currently volunteer for the Oregon Season Tracker (OST) program that is part of the Oregon State University’s Extension Service. As part of this program and as a citizen science volunteer, I contribute to daily precipitation data (Station#: OR-BN-155) for the Corvallis region, located in Benton County (Oregon, US). These daily-data readings are made available to the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow (CoCoRaHS) network’s website. Such data is used not only by the National Weather Service, but also by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the United States to track weather and climactic factors.
Asides, I have also volunteered as an Educational Volunteer at The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis (TCM) as part of IEEE’s National Engineer’s Week. In addition, and while I was in Bloomington, IN, I enrolled as a community development volunteer for the VITAL (Volunteers In Tutoring Adult Learners) program at Monroe County Public Library, and also led a Robotics Exhibition in a local elementary school as part of an outreach program of the Cognitive Science program at Indiana University.
