News for Fall 2014

We are happy to report that our commitment and focus on education and outreach is stronger than ever. Please contact us if you are interested in having us visit your classroom.

We will also be expanding several major new programs in the coming year:

a) Interactive Mapping of the Planets – an online student and citizen engagement activity for which we will soon be searching for testing subjects.
b) Western Worlds, a radio show and podcast featuring engaging interviews and roundtable discussions with world leaders in Planetary Exploration – including our very own faculty and graduate students.
c) Various public events, such as International Observe the Moon Night.
d) Recruitment events on-line and at Western for high school students.

We are also working closely with the Faculty of Education here at Western to develop a certificate program for teachers to learn about interdisciplinary sciences, and create resources to be used in the classroom.

Our in-class resources for inquiry-based activities on a wide variety of planetary science topics will also still be available for FREE online.

Please contact us for more information!

The CPSX Outreach Program has been made possible by funding from NSERC PromoScience, the Canadian Space Agency, and The University of Western Ontario.
