[27.04] The Structure & Evolution of the Universe Education Forum: Opportunities for scientist involvement in education and public outreach

S.J. Steel, R.R. Gould, M.E. Dussault, J.A. Grier (Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics)

The Universe Forum is one of four Education and Public Outreach forums funded by NASA's Office of Space Science. We are located at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics.

This poster will present examples of high leverage education and public outreach programs developed by the Forum in collaboration with NASA SEU missions and other members of NASA's OSS E/PO effort. These include a professional development experience for teachers in the Cambridge, MA public school system, community workshops with organizations such as the Girl Scouts, and working with SEU mission E/PO partners to present a short course on modeling the universe, which debuted at the 2004 NSTA national meeting and will be offered at the 2004 AAS HEAD meeting.

We will also detail future projects and opportunities for scientist involvement in E/PO in both formal and informal education arenas. Particular emphasis will be given to opportunities in 2005, a year that marks both the World Year of Physics and the Einstein Centennial celebrations.
