The Center for Biological Physics is dedicated to outreach programs, especially with regard Physics Education. The CBP has been involved in summer programs to work with Arizona science teachers, exciting them with tutorials on cutting edge research, and also working alongside teachers on new pedagogical methods based on biophysical ideas. Of special note is the "Popiscle Stick Project"
