Abstract: Science Outreach for Students (hereafter referred to as SOS) is a regional informal science outreach program designed to mentor K-12 students using local college students. SOS enhances K-12 education through the use of ecology as a teaching tool, and transforms the public's awareness and understanding of environmental science and ecology by connecting communities and schools to the enthusiasm and intellect of local undergraduate students. SOS utilizes formal and informal science education to teach both the K-12 students and the local community. Since its inception in 2004, SOS participants have impacted over 50,000 people in Sarasota County, Florida through science education outreach. SOS not only impacts K-12 students and local community, it also changes the outlook of many of its participating student mentors. To date, 83 undergraduate students have taught science outreach, and many of have been inspired to consider careers in science education. As one of the founders of SOS, I trace the history of this innovative program and propose ways to enhance science education in an undergraduate curriculum through informal science education outreach training.
