Jim Pitchford - Lead Outreach Designer

Major: Mathematics

Graduated: BS: 2011

I have been part of the SPS Outreach team since it began, when I was still studying for my BS in Mathematics. Since then, I have gone along with for every outreach, provided I have been available, which has been the great majority of them. As part of the team I do the demonstrations and experiments with the children and have also designed and redesigned some of them, such as one demonstration that involved rapidly evaporating liquid nitrogen. For the past three years I have also been a news editor for a website, where I specialize in current science and technology news that concern many different fields of research.
