A WORKSHOP FOR EARLY-CAREER ASTRONOMERS WHO WANT TO DO BETTER OUTREACH

(Sunday and Monday Jan 3 & 4, 2016 just before the Orlando, Florida
American Astronomical Society Meeting)

The AAS is sponsoring a workshop — and an ongoing community — to support early-career astronomers (graduate students, post-docs, recent faculty) in doing effective outreach to schools, families, and the public. The AAS Astronomy Ambassadors program (now in its fourth year) offers two days of hands-on training, extensive resources and pre-tested activities, and a like-minded group of peers. If you are a young astronomer with an interest in spending a fraction of your time helping students or the public become more scientifically literate, this is an invitation to join the growing Ambassadors community. There is no registration fee.

Applications are due by no later than Oct. 19, 2015.  For more about the program, see:
