NScD educational outreach programs seek to promote the building of strong partnerships between neutron sciences at ORNL and the higher education sector. A major focus has been on the development of cyber-enabled collaborative graduate courses with participation from multiple university and institution partners. This outreach activity aims at facilitating education and development of the most immediate and relevant target group for future neutron scattering users: graduate students. ORNL acts as an impartial facilitator to bring together the most prominent professors and researchers in the different areas of neutron science to educate the physically-disperse community of interested graduate students.
Consistent with the above goals, NScD has also been a major contributor and has partnered with other universities and institutions to organize educational outreach workshops and summer schools in neutron scattering for graduate students around the nation.
