Morning Round Table Discussions - Facilitator Information
- Increase awareness of the range of Earth and planetary science programs, tools, and data resources that exist, from which to draw experiences, and with which to make connections
- Build knowledge about key features of a successful PDE program
- Reflect on a specific application of best practices in the design or implementation of a new program or improvement of an existing program
