Congratulations to Pommier, NSF CAREER award will enable K-12 outreach to SDUSD

IGPP's Anne Pommier has recently been awarded the highly competiitve NSF CAREER award for Experimental Investigation of the Transport Properties of Sulfide Melts at Upper Mantle Conditions. Earning this award will allow Pommier share the outcomes, of her experiments studying the behavior of sulfide melts in the Earth's interior, with K12 teachers in the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD).  Pommier will work with SIO's Cheryl Peach to make her research part of an extensive education initiative—together they will collaborate with SDUSD to create series of educator training workshops based on the experiments' results.
