EPA-RTP Speakers Bureau
Bringing the U.S. EPA to your class or organization
Welcome to the U.S. EPA-Research Triangle Park’s Speakers Bureau. We are a free resource that schools, universities, and community groups in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, N.C. area can use to find and request U.S. EPA-RTP speakers for classes or events. We also offer campus tours for student groups, provide judges for science competitions, and host EPA booths at schools and community events.
EPA Speakers in the classroom can typically accommodate a maximum of 30 students at a time for presentations and activities. If your group is larger, we will try to find to find a speaker who is able to accommodate the request. This maximum does not apply to groups visiting the EPA for a field trip as we are often able to split the students into smaller groups.

Hands-on Activities and Other Resources on Air Quality and Climate Change for Teachers
EPA researchers participate in educational outreach to schools, museums, and other locations to teach children about air quality and climate change research that EPA and partners conduct to protect the air we breathe and provide the knowledge and scientific tools to respond to a changing climate. As part of the outreach, researchers have developed several hands-on activities for teachers and others to use in the classroom and other educational settings.
