Science Educator and User Liaison for NOAA's Science On a Sphere

Hilary Peddicord


Hilary Peddicord is a science educator and user liaison for NOAA's Science On a Sphere at CIRES Education and Outreach. Hilary was instrumental in the release of the flatscreen and mobile versions of SOS called SOS Explorer, which allow a subset of the vast SOS Dataset Catalog to be enjoyed virtually by anyone. Hilary organizes professional development activities for science teachers and informal educators, creates scientific storytelling content for SOS and SOSx platforms, and leads a group of SOS users from across the globe in sharing their best and brightest practices in audience engagement. Hilary studied Zoology and Dance at the University of Wyoming and was certified to teach secondary science at CU Boulder. Her eclectic background of teaching dance, bartending, cattle-wrangling, and coordinating film festivals contribute to her warm and inclusive style.
