"Commentary: Teach Network Science to Teenagers"
Our article on our outreach efforts to teach network science to teenagers now has its page numbers, so it's out in final form. Here are the details. Title: Commentary: Teach Network Science to Teenagers Authors: Heather A. Harrington, Mariano Beguerisse Díaz, M. Puck Rombach, Laura M. Keating, and Mason A. Porter Abstract: We discuss our outreach efforts to introduce school students to network science and explain why researchers who study networks should be involved in such outreach activities. We provide overviews of modules that we have designed for these efforts, comment on our successes and failures, and illustrate the potentially enormous impact of such outreach efforts. Also don't forget our associated teaching materials and University of Oxford's promotional video about our efforts.
