A Community Workshop
Monday, August 1, 2005

Morning Round Table Discussions - Facilitator Information

Workshop Goals

  • 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


Planetary Data in Exhibits and Planetariums (Dan Neafus)

Planetary Data in Student Investigations (Sheri Klug)

Planetary Data in Student Data Collection/Comparison (Jessica Robin)

  • You will host 2 45-minute sessions.
  • Identify a scribe who will stay for both sessions. The organizers will help make this happen.
