What is a Collaborator?
- You are an educator interested in having PyPhD give a presentation in your class or at your school
- You are a museum outreach coordinator interested in expanding into research-based talks
- You are a librarian interested in hosting science talks to promote community involvement in the library
- You are interested in learning more about science and connecting with the amazing research done at Baylor!
You may see the words “educator”, “partner”, or “collaborator” throughout the site. These are all terms that we use to describe anyone who is interested in working with Present Your PhD and having us host workshops or give a guest talk/presentation
How does it work?
We connect you to one of our Organizers, who will communicate about the logistics of setting up a PyPhD presentation
Build Your Team
The Organizer will work with you to find the best Presenter to match your needs
The Presenter will craft a presentation and will work with you to ensure it is appropriate for the audience
PyPhD comes to you and gives our presentation, engages the audience with science and age-appropriate exposure to research
The Bullet Points
- Present Your PhD (PyPhD) is a group of graduate students at Baylor University who are passionate about research and sharing our work with the community through this guest lecturing program.
- We need to create strong connections with collaborators like you to implement our program. We rely on your expertise to help guide our collaboration.
- Getting started is easy! You can shoot us an email or read more about our program

Praise for PyPhD
We had a wonderful experience with both of our presenters. It was perfect for the age range and fit in well with material that we had covered in class.
I completely respect Ms. (Tori) Neises and her communication in getting the presenters in my classes. We thourally enjoyed each presentation! I would be happy to work with this program again and had no complaints!
Andrew did a great job! The presentation was right on target with age-appropriateness and engagement. I loved that the students had a hands-on experience. He handled student questions like a pro! So glad you have this program as a resource connecting real-life scientists and their research with students.
Our Top Priorities
Present Your PhD is dedicated to empowering young learners, especially young women and underrepresented minorities, to envision themselves as future scientists, to inspire the community, and to create driving partners of research in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
EARLY STUDENT ENGAGEMENT
We know that many young students may not even know a scientist. So we designed a presentation to engage them in the process of thinking like a researcher and inspire their scientific minds!
PyPhD was founded with the mission to bridge the Waco and the Baylor communities. We do that by collaborating with dedicated educators, communicators, and locals alike.
Present Your PhD empowers our members have full control over their success, and, therefore, the success of our collaborations. We are proud to have a diverse and passionate member base.
It can be hard to answer the “why do we have to know this?” question. We do our best to match our research to what you are teaching in the classroom or to students’ interests.
Have you ever wanted to share your research but weren’t sure how or where to start? Does your writing lack broader impacts? Join us to enhance your graduate school experience and training.
We want to give a special thanks to all of the schools and community centers that have collaborated with us so far. Their feedback has been very heartwarming and affirming of our mission to bring science awareness and education to Waco.
