The Year of the Solar System provides a framework of thematically structured existing products and activities. Each topic highlights different aspects of our Solar System – its formation, volcanism, gravity, ice, life elsewhere? – weaving together activities, resources, news, and ideas that scientists, faculty, teachers, clubs, and organizations can use to engage audiences in exploring the big questions of Planetary Science.
Opportunities to get involved with education and public outreach can be found in the Scientist E/PO brochure.
