The University of Iowa Department of Physics and Astronomy is fortunate to have two FOEP APS Fellows as coordinators of our long running “Hawk-Eyes on Science” and “Hawkeyes in Space” outreach programs. We will outline the many different aspects that must come together in the creation of a successful and sustainable outreach program.  In many respects, the demonstrations and hands-on activities are of secondary importance when weighed against the problems of funding, transportation, staffing, infrastructure, departmental, school, and organization support.  We will focus on those problems and some of the solutions that we have found while coordinating our outreach programs.  In addition, we will show examples of demonstrations that we have chosen for their topic versatility and the variety of settings or themes in which we have used them.
