  1. Reach Out to the Public - Give Them What You've Got! Enter your name and contact information here American Association for Laboratory Animal Science AALAS advances responsible laboratory animal care and use to benefit people and animals.

  2. So, just what do you have? Expertise! No one knows your job better than you. You are the one there at work every day making a difference in the lives of thousands of people and animals. YOU are the one that needs to share your knowledge with others. Think about this… Who do YOU want telling our school children about the use of animals in biomedical research?

  3. You have more than just knowledge! Close your eyes and mentally “walk” through your facility. Items and materials from each room have the potential of becoming public outreach tools. Look at these examples… • Temperature tapes from the washroom • Various sizes of syringes • Empty feed bags • Sterilized surgical pack • X-ray gloves and apron • Clean rodent shipping box • Rabbit or rodent restrainers

  4. PPE – “Show and Wear” For safety reasons, gloves MUST be latex-free and powder-free!

  5. Feed & Bedding – “Touch and Feel”

  6. Caging Samples

  7. Environmental Enrichment – “Explore”

  8. Rodent Housingand Enrichment

  9. Posters and Handouts

  10. Don’t forget to have a little fun, too! • Funny faces • Face painting • PPE parade • Gloves galore!

  11. Toys Make Excellent Learning Tools

  12. Photos = “1000 words +” • Photos make what you are talking about come to life. • They help alleviate concerns people may have about animal research. • Make sure photos contain nothing identifiable (room numbers, PI names, etc.) • Make sure caging/facilities are presentable before taking photos. • Always refer to company policies before taking or using internal photos.

  13. Rack Washer Clean Rat Cages TunnelWasher Animal Bedding

  14. Daily human/animal interaction Rack of Ventilated Mouse Cages Diagnostics lab

  15. Changing mice to a clean cage Changing a rabbit’s water bottle Accurate record keeping is critical

  16. Transporting a clean rack of cages Researcher observing his mice

  17. Post-operative observation Rodent barrier facility Taking a radiograph

  18. Animal food prep area Daily observation of animals Pigs love their baths!

  19. Feeding a newborn Rhesus monkey Special TLC

  23. Learn how current research is improving our lives

  24. Info for Grades K-6 Info for Grades 7-12

  25. Curricula for Teachers

  26. Download Classroom Resources

  27. Download Even More Classroom Resources

  28. Classroom Activities

  29. Educational Games and Classroom Activities

  30. Learn about careers in laboratory animal science

  31. Learn about actual technicians in the field • What educational background they have • Why they chose the field • How they actually got started • What type of work they do • and much more!

  32. Write it down!

  33. Outreach Ideas… Endless Imagination Now you’re asking, “So, how do I get started?” You just did…you were HERE today!
