The next phase of the NSF-funded program, Rising Stargirls will be hosting a number of free training workshops for educators led by Rising Stargirls’ founder: UC Irvine Astronomer, Astrobiologist, and TED Fellow Professor Aomawa Shields.

In this 2 hour workshop, educators will learn how to employ writing, visual art, and theater games to teach Astronomy and Astrobiology to middle-school girls from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in the sciences.
