Join NASA’s Universe of Learning for a hands-on experience with the universe beyond our solar system. Spend time in an immersive virtual reality environment, control robotic telescopes to scan the skies, find gorgeous images of galaxies and nebulae, and take all of these experiences home to your audience. Participants will explore a wide variety of NASA astrophysics learning resources and will spend time workshopping new ways to apply what they learn. The goal is to enable participants to adapt NASA resources in innovative ways to their own local context to better enable learning and advance scientific literacy. Preregistration required. Limited to 30 participants.  Fee: $150 per person (includes breakfast and lunch)
