ED033 – Sharing Best Practices for Space Science Outreach and Engagement

We invite authors to share their range of experiences in space science outreach and engagement provided by large observatories, science centers, schools, clubs, non-profits, NASA missions and NASA centers, and other institutions. We are particularly interested in how these projects enable members of the public to participate in space science and are seeking synthesized best practices to share with the community. Questions?
