Become a contributing editor for Science in the Classroom (scienceintheclassroom.org), an initiative by Science Magazine to get K-12 and undergrads involved in reading their magazine and learning more about science in general. Briefly, Science gets postdocs to summarize manuscripts in lay language, come up with glossaries for scientific language used in the article, and then they allow the content to be accessed for free as a teaching tool to anyone.

The commitment to being a contributing editor is summarized in the link below. This is a great opportunity for postdocs who are either (1) interested in teaching or (2) science editing to add to their CV.
