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 (now in its seventh year) is offering two days of hands-on training, extensive resources, and pre-tested activities — plus a like-minded group of peers. This workshop is offered in conjunction with the 233rd meeting of the AAS in Seattle in January 2019.
