Barbara Pearson at AAAS

I am in San Jose at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Annual Meeting with her Linguistics for Everyone Committee. With representatives from UMass, UMD, OSU and U Arizona, plus some volunteers from Stanford, I organized an LSA booth at Family Science Days, a weekend of science activities for people from preschool to the senior center. I think this is the first time language science has been represented there. Activities coordinators are Cecile McKee, Elly Zimmer, and Kathryn Campbell-Kibler. I promise to return with a whole suite of cool linguistics outreach activities!

If you, or someone you know, will be at the AAAS this year, be sure you (or they) come by Booth 36.
