Welcome to the Explore! Discussion Boards!

Network with other librarians, after-school providers, and informal educators who are using Explore! activities in their programs. Together we'll engage children in space and planetary science through hands-on activities in library and informal learning environments!

All educators are invited to view the Calendar, Mission News and Science, and Explore! discussion boards. This online community is offered as a service to those who have participated in one or more of our Explore! workshops. Workshop participants may post comments about Mission News and Science topics or initiate discussions on any of the other boards. Other educators may join the Explore! community in a spectator role through the Register link at the bottom of this page. Create a user name (preferably some form of your real name) and password and provide your email address and full name to set up a free account! Registered users receive periodic electronic updates summarizing the latest postings.

Professional comments about Mission News and Science postings are welcome by registered users. Invited members may post comments and poll responses or create threads within the discussion boards.

This is a professional community that will benefit from your thoughtful and insightful comments. Unprofessional postings will be removed. The discussion boards are updated and moderated by LPI Explore! Staff.
