[9.02] Education and Public Outreach at the SIRTF Science Center

D. Daou (SIRTF Science Center/California Institute of Technology)

Communicating the world of infrared astronomy to the public is the main goal of the Education and Public Outreach Office of the SIRTF Science Center; but certainly not its only aim. In the past few years we have created a wide variety of educational products that explain the infrared as well as the multi-wavelength universe. We've produced a suite of award-winning websites (sirtf.caltech.edu/EPO/) that speak to audiences as varied as kindergarteners to amateur astronomers. We've also filmed short videos about infrared light and created posters and brochures that have become favorites with NASA education specialists as well as classroom teachers.
