Suzi Taylor is the director of the Science Math Resource Center. She has a long history of leading outreach programs for Montana State University, including serving as MSU lead for Montana NSF EPSCoR's Track 1 projects, and partnering with faculty on programs funded by NASA, USDA, the Department of Energy and other agencies to create outreach projects that support the citizens of Montana. Suzi has a special interest in reaching youth in Montana's smallest and most rural communities, and some of her favorite projects have included working with 40 Montana classrooms as they virtually followed an MSU geology expedition to Mount Everest; helping to launch Science Action Clubs all over Montana; and leading a statewide geocaching project tied to the Montana Climate Assessment.
