›Communicating Astronomy: The 124th Annual Meeting of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific
Join us in the beautiful setting of the American Southwest for a three-day symposium on the joys and challenges of communicating our understanding of the universe and science in general--whether in the classroom, in a museum or nature center, to general and specific audiences, through books and magazines, on the web, via festivals and fairs, on radio and television, or through the social media. Preceding the symposium will be a two-day workshop: In the Footsteps of Galileo, a national workshop of educators in grades 3-12 and in informal settings.
Anyone involved or with an interest in science education and public outreach (EPO) and science communication is welcome, including: scientists and EPO professionals from NASA and NSF projects, planetariums, museums, science centers, universities, scientific organizations, research institutions, parks, nature centers, and afterschool settings; K-14 teachers and instructors; administrators; education researchers and program evaluators; book authors, science journalists, podcasters, bloggers, public information officers, webmasters; amateur astronomers doing outreach; and those interested in these fields of endeavor.
