CULTURALLY INCLUSIVE PLANETARY ENGAGEMENT
Conducted by the NASA SMD Science Activation Planetary Reach project
Do you want to learn strategies for engaging diverse audiences? Planetary scientists (including graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, engineers and technicians) and informal educators are invited to apply to attend a professional development workshop, Culturally Inclusive Planetary Engagement, August 4-6, 2022. During the workshop, scientists and educators are paired together and supported in two-way conversations around diversity and inclusion. Participants will discuss ways to engage Latinx and Black youth in their community in planetary science and exploration. Workshop participants come away with actionable strategies and hands-on activity ideas for engagement and the beginnings of relationships/collaborations with other participants. Following the workshop, a public engagement event will be held at a local institution allowing workshop participants the opportunity to utilize engagement strategies discussed in the workshop.
Who: Space is limited to 15 planetary scientists (including graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and planetary engineers and technicians) and 15 informal educators. Stipends are available for participants able to accept them.
Times and location: The workshop will take place in Houston, August 4th (1:00pm – 5:00pm CDT) and August 5th (9:00am – 5:00pm CDT) with a community engagement event on August 6th.
Application form at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DMZ2765. The deadline to apply is 5:00pm CDT, June 30, 2022.
