Abstract: The JINA (Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics) Physics Frontier Center enables swift communication and stimulates collaborations among astronomers, astrophysicists and nuclear physicists. Part of its mission is to introduce those fields into the classroom - from the academy to secondary school students to the public - providing opportunities for meaningful collaboration whenever possible. JINA’s outreach goals include contributing to science education at K-12 level, reaching the public primarily through the internet, and increasing diversity in the field of nuclear astrophysics. This poster will present some of the myriad ways JINA achieves those goals, through summer programs, hands-on experiments, and magnetic marbles. For more information, go to
