Materials science and engineering is not as well-known as other engineering disciplines, therefore it exponentially suffers from the lack of a diverse, inclusive pipeline. This absence of exposure starts from an early age, but extends to more senior populations pursuing lifelong learning. This lecture will focus on key strategies that can transition the interests of the speaker into effective tools for piquing the curiosity and inspiring longer-term connectivity and engagement. More pointedly, research-based outreach practices that prioritize inclusivity and ensure engagement in an era of remote instruction will be emphasized. Examples from Mathaudhu’s successful usage of pop-culture, comic books and hip-hop music to teach MSE principles will be presented, along with interactive heuristic application of the presented concepts to assist the audience in developing their own unique outreach tools.
