The San Diego Science Educators Association (SDSEA) recognized the Salk Institute's Education Outreach Program (EOP) with an award of excellence for its support of K-12 science education in the local region.

Two San Diego teachers whose students participated in the Salk's Mobile Science Lab and the annual High School Science Day programs nominated the Salk program for the award.

The SDSEA is a professional organization supporting science educators. Its mission is to promote science literacy and advocate for science education by promoting professionalism, leadership and community outreach.

"As a past teacher, it is an honor to be recognized by my former colleagues for providing quality educational opportunities to San Diego students," said Salk Education Specialist Dona Mapston.
