K-12 Outreach

Tomoko Matsuo is a strong advocate for women in science, engineering and mathematics. She is passionate about math and science education for girls and women of all background. Some of her outreach activities include:

  • Expanding Your Horizons conference, to encourage 6th, 7th and 8th-grade girls to study math, science, and technology by allowing them to interact with women who use these disciplines in their careers. Tomoko has been presenting hands-on experiment workshops (e.g., liquid nitrogen experiments, electromagnetism experiments) at annual Expanding Your Horizons conferences at CU's engineering center from 2007 through 2014.
