Welcome to Boulder!
If you're sold on JILA's scientific prospects, here are some things you might want to know about Boulder:
Boulder, Colorado, is in one of the most beautiful areas of the country, with hiking, camping, skiing, rock climbing, mountain biking, and running among the region's popular outdoor activities.
Boulder is a fun and interesting town, with many cafes and restaurants, a downtown pedestrian mall, a traditional teahouse built by artisans from Boulder's sister city Dushanbe (Tajikistan), as well as hundreds of miles of bike and pedestrian paths linking it with nearby communities and open space.
Boulder's artistic and cultural resources include the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra, the Chautauqua Summer Music Festival, the Takács String Quartet (artists in residence at CU), the CU Artists' Series, the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, the Boulder History Museum, the CU Art Galleries and Museum, the NCAR Gallery, the Women of the West Museum, the Ars Nova a capella singers, the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, the Dairy Center for the Arts, and more!
The Boulder Valley School District and other nearby school districts collaborate with JILA Fellows working to improve K–12 science education through the Physics Education Technology project and the Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics – Teacher Preparation project.
