Free Online Workshop: Confidence and Curiosity: Girls at the Telescope
Hurry: Registration deadline is October 15
The Night Sky Network and Reach for the Stars: NASA Science for Girl Scouts have teamed up to offer free online workshops for amateur astronomers about the new Space Science badges and best practices for engaging Girl Scouts with astronomy.
The workshop teams interactive live sessions and chances to explore your thoughts with other astronomers in a community forum.
In this workshop, you will be able to explore some Girl Scout-tested, effective ways to interact with girls in informal learning environments. You can master techniques to help create an inviting environment where everyone has the opportunity to learn more about space science. Connect with a community that shares your dedication to inclusive outreach. We strongly recommend taking this workshop with another person from your club, so you can implement these strategies together.
The next session we will be offering is November 4-22, 2019, with a registration deadline of October 15. The workshop includes three one-hour length live online sessions on November 7, 14, and 21 at 6 pm PT / 9pm ET.
Please sign up to take advantage of this free workshop - and thank you for your dedication to making astronomy welcoming for everyone.
