Facilitated by Bob Chen

This workshop will focus on helping participants develop ideas for effective education and outreach activities. Featuring active, hands-on learning, small group discussions, and guided inquiry, this workshop will include short presentations on exemplary projects in formal and informal education designed for K-12, undergraduate, graduate, and public audiences to stimulate ideas.  Discussions of how people learn, how to assess the effectiveness of outreach activities, and how to develop projects that meet specific goals will help support project development. Participants are welcome to bring ideas that they would like to develop and share, and for which they would like to receive feedback.
