[48.01] An Updated Online Menu of Opportunities for Scientists in Education (MOSIE)

C.A. Morrow, J.B. Harold (Space Science Institute)

Traditionally, scientists have been involved in education through school visits, as role models, and by teaching single lessons. Although helpful, there are much broader and deeper ways scientists and engineers may contribute their expertise. As part of the Space Science Institute’s role as Broker/Facilitator for the NASA Office of Space Science (OSS) Education and Public Outreach (EPO) Support Network, and motivated by the need to have EPO options for scientists who win research grants, we have assembled the first iteration of the "Menu of Opportunities for Scientists in Education" (MOSIE). The MOSIE website is intended for space scientists who win OSS research awards and wish to become involved in a related EPO program. MOSIE will help facilitate scientist participation and/or collaboration in high-impact space science EPO projects. It provides both ongoing opportunities that scientists could plug in to, either as volunteers or as part of a funded project, as well as examples and ideas for EPO proposals. Projects included in MOSIE are selected because they have ongoing, nationally distributed opportunities for space scientists to participate in education in meaningful ways. We expect these options for scientists’ EPO involvement to evolve and the number of targeted projects to grow. If you represent an ongoing EPO program with nationally distributed opportunities for space scientist participation, and would like your program listed in MOSIE, please stop by the poster, or contact Dr. Cherilynn Morrow at camorrow@colorado.edu.
