Calling all educators! Are you looking for ideas to create new and exciting programs for your audiences? Celestial events (eclipses, meteor showers, etc.) are seen frequently from Earth while, in this age of planetary exploration, NASA spacecraft are often reaching important mission milestones. Use these celestial events and NASA mission milestones as unique opportunities to engage your audiences in solar system science and exploration! The Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston, TX has created a new website called “Look Up!” containing resources, ideas, and tips for educators looking to create programs centered on solar system events. Visit http://www.lpi.usra.edu/education/look_up for programming ideas and events happening in 2014 (including Comet Siding Spring’s October 19th close encounter with Mars), 2015, and beyond!
