A Two Day Focus Group on How NASA and Planetariums Can Help Each Other Achieve Their Respective Educational Goals
The Great Lakes Planetarium Association (GLPA) conducted a two-day focus group consisting of small and mid-sized planetarium educators and NASA staff. The meeting's objective were be to generate strategies on how NASA and small- to mid-sized planetariums can help each other achieve their respective goals to increase understanding of and interest in earth science, space science, and technology. GLPA invited participants from regional planetarium associations across the nation, from NASA regional centers representing all sciences and technologies, and from other relevant parties who could further the focus group objectives. Liz Monroe-Cook facilitated the focus group sessions. As results are compiled they will be posted to this website. Thank you for participating in this event.
