In its seventh episode, the "Humans of JILA" podcast highlights the Partnerships for Informal Science Education in the Community (PISEC) program.

PISEC is an educational outreach program supported by JILA's Physics Frontier Center (PFC) and the University of Colorado Boulder. Its mission revolves around connecting university volunteers with local K-12 students. Through playful and engaging inquiry-based science activities, it aims to inspire underrepresented student groups in STEM.

The episode introduces six passionate PISEC members and volunteers, sharing their journeys into the program and its impact on their lives and the communities they serve. Their stories underline the importance of educational outreach in cultivating a science identity among students and the invaluable experiences it offers to physics researchers and students alike.
