Members of the Engle lab are committed to outreach activities to inspire the next generation of scientists and educate the local community about how fundamental scientific research improves their lives. Recent activities have included coordinating lab tours and hands-on demos with visiting groups from ACS Student Affiliates Chapter of Cal State Long Beach and the Partners in Science Program, as well as helping to run the National Foundation for Autism Research Halloween Carnival.

For several years running, the Engle lab has sponsored a special award at the Orange County Science and Engineering Fair for teams that did not place in the traditional fair but did demonstrate persistence and dedication through their research in the face of difficulties.
