[16.01] IDEAS - Benefits of Creative Collaboration

B. Eisenhamer (Space Telescope Science Institute)

A key goal for the Initiative to Develop Education through Astronomy and Space Science (IDEAS) Grant Program is to enhance science education through astronomy and space science via creative collaboration between professional astronomers/space scientists and professional educators/informal science educators. Creative collaboration not only refers to the partnership formed by the team members of proposed programs team but also to the wider community of audiences and venues. There are many possible untapped audiences and/or communities that could be targeted with an astronomy/space science program. There are also dissemination possibilities, including publication in professional education journals, instruction and display, that could amplify the affect a program has on a broader community. The poster will provide examples of previous creative collaborations as well as information on the next proposal cycle.
