Free Public Outreach Workshop for Early-Career Astronomers

 

 

 

 

 

The American Astronomical Society (AAS) is sponsoring a free skill-building workshop to support early-career astronomers in doing effective outreach to schools, families, and the public. The AAS Astronomy Ambassadors program is offering two days of hands-on training, extensive resources, and pre-tested activities with a like-minded group of peers. This workshop is offered in conjunction with the 235th meeting of the AAS in Honolulu in January 2020.
