Educators and Students

Seminars and presentations are routinely offered to different scholastic levels across southern California.  If you are interested in having a PIER representative talk with your class or group, or you have question about one of our studies, please contact us.


A formal internship program is currently available through nearby MiraCosta College.  The internship program is competitive and offers students an opportunity to shadow the research team throughout the year.  The program aims to provide students with both laboratory and field experience.  
Additional research opportunities are occasionally offered to both affiliated and non-affiliated students and interested parties.  To hear more about volunteer opportunities, please contact us.
