The AIM Education and Public Outreach program will use the striking images of PMCs to motivate interest, learning, and a deeper understanding of the issues surrounding changes in our atmosphere. The visible manifestation of PMCs provides an unprecedented and unique opportunity to utilize AIM data in both formal and informal education. Through collaborations with informal education organizations AIM outreach will assist with educating the public about the environmental implications associated with the data, and therefore, aid in creating a scientifically literate workforce capable of making educated decisions related to environmental policies and laws. Each of the AIM informal education collaborations will have a long-term impact reaching out to parents and children in an informal setting for years to come.
