Science teachers are invited to attend a free workshop focused on lunar science, exploration, and how our understanding of the Moon is evolving with the new data from current and recent lunar missions. Participants will learn about recent discoveries, reinforce their understanding of lunar science concepts, gain tools to address common student misconceptions about the Moon, interact with lunar scientists and engineers, and learn how to bring LRO data to their students using activities aligned with National Science Education Standards and Benchmarks. Where possible, workshops will include either a tour of a science facility or field trip that will help participants better understand mission operations or geologic processes relevant to the Moon. The workshops will be held on the following dates:
- June 18-22 – Morehead State University; Morehead, Ky. (application deadline May 20)
- June 25-28 – Lunar and Planetary Institute; Houston, Texas
- July 30-Aug. 3 – Museum of the North – University of Alaska; Fairbanks, Alaska (application deadline June 24)
