Short Description:
Aura develops and maintains print and online content for use at informal education events (e.g., local community events) and to be used by informal educators at their institutions (e.g., museum programs). This effort entails developing, testing, and revising as appropriate informal education materials – hands-on activities, fact sheets, web content – and making these materials available via the Aura website and kits that can be checked out by local educators and scientists. The objective of this content is to engage students and educators (outside the classroom), and the general public about science related to Aura’s mission questions and content applicable other NASA Earth Science missions.
