Conducted by the NASASMD Science Activation Planetary Resources and Content Heroes (ReaCH) project.
Planetary scientists and astrobiologists (including graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, engineers and technicians) and informal (out-of-school time) educators are invited to apply to attend a 2023 Culturally Inclusive Planetary Engagement professional development workshop:
During the workshops, scientists and educators are paired together and supported in bi-directional conversations around diversity and inclusion in engaging Black and Latinx audiences in planetary science. Participants also lead hands-on activities during a co-designed public engagement event following the workshop held in collaboration with a local youth-serving organization. The event allows workshop participants the opportunity to practice engagement strategies discussed in the workshop.
Confirmed 2023 workshop locations and dates:
New Orleans, LA (Tulane University; June 8-10)
Mountain View, CA (SETI Institute; June 22-24)
Miami, FL (Perez Art Museum Miami; August 17-19)
Space in each workshop is limited to 10 planetary scientists/astrobiologists and 10 informal educators. Stipends are available for participants able to accept them.
