Broader Impacts The educational impact of the PBIC is demonstrated by the number of undergraduate and graduate student participants in field deployments and the routine maintenance and operations of the PBIC. Most experiments use undergraduate and graduate students in the deployment and maintenance of the stations, many at UCSB, but also at institutions within California and in
some cases nationwide (SCEC summer intern programs). Giving the students hands-on experience in how the data is collected is an important part of the education of future geophysicists, especially in a time when data is so readily available via the Internet without any knowledge of what is involved in the data collection process. In addition, the number of women and minority students previously and currently involved in the PBIC program is significant.
Outreach to K-12 students has always been an important part of the PBIC program.
